The Himalayan Field Rat Paradise of Gonrati is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sir Raticus York with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.786 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York City. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gonratian economy, worth 153 trillion Gonrati Frajs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,004 Gonrati Frajs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, bars are packed at all hours, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ratism.

Gonrati is ranked 16,328th in the world and 528th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,313.98 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
