The Himalayan Field Rat Paradise of Gonrati is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade York with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.503 billion Gonratians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York City. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gonratian economy, worth 413 trillion Gonrati Frajs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 91,812 Gonrati Frajs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A video of Comrade York wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, people are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, G-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gonrati's national animal is the Himalayan Field Rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yorkism.

Gonrati is ranked 260,743rd in the world and 12,206th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 0.68 flags saluted per person per day.
