The Armed Republic of Gonswanza is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Laura Ortiz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.429 billion Gonswanzans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kotun. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Gonswanzan economy, worth a remarkable 2,221 trillion Donars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 409,208 Donars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Gonswanza is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and nudity is frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gonswanza's national animal is the Jewel Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gonswanza is ranked 6,254th in the world and 9th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 582,883 Standard Monetary Units.
