The Armed Republic of Gonswanza is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 321 million Gonswanzans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kotun. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gonswanzan economy, worth 32.3 trillion Donars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 100,709 Donars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The deaf are perplexed when the weather report tells them that the wind will be "bringing some rain along the Nazi ghosts", citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, diminutive Gonswanzan generals are feared for their aggressiveness, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. 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.

Gonswanza is ranked 39,604th in the world and 495th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 72.26 law-abiding acts per hour.
