The Himalayan Field Rat Paradise of Gonrati is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Rat Boy with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.278 billion Gonratians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York City. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gonratian economy, worth 112 trillion Gonrati Frajs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,753 Gonrati Frajs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, saying "don't do anything that Rat Boy wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gonrati's national animal is the Himalayan Field Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gonrati is ranked 209,526th in the world and 7,794th in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 50.65 Workforce Participation Rate.
