The First Empire of Gonhog is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Benjamin Moore with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.441 billion Gonhogians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaken City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gonhogian economy, worth 432 trillion Gonians a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 177,078 Gonians, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Chocolate in Gonhog has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, behind every local dictator is a Gonhogian advisor whispering in their ear, police detectives carry phrenology calipers as part of their standard kit, and voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gonhog's national animal is the Hon Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Gonhog is ranked 141,343rd in the world and 74th in International Democratic Union for Most Primitive, scoring -212.9 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
