The Socialist People's Democracy of Golanchia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Davit Purplinski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 16.918 billion Golanchans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golanchograd. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Golanchian economy, worth a remarkable 8,835 trillion Purroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 522,271 Purroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, trespassers entering Chairman Davit Purplinski's office are immediately vaporized, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and citizens have an obligation to remain silent and anything they say may be used against them. Crime is totally unknown. Golanchia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Golanchia is ranked 406th in the world and 2nd in North Korea for Longest Average Lifespans, with 96.89 Years.
