The First Empire of Gonhog is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Benjamin Moore with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.724 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, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaken City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Gonhogian economy, worth 896 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 189,880 Gonians, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience, the government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine, and the nation's leader appoints ministers directly. 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 46,960th in the world and 14th in International Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 61.11 on the Rand Index.
