The Mod Liberal Unitary Republic of Goobergunchia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kalden Hansen with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.424 billion Goobergunchians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goobergunch City. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goobergunchian economy, worth a remarkable 3,101 trillion knugels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,358 knugels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goobergunchia's national animal is the red-tailed hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Goobergunchia is ranked 56,450th in the world and 1,112th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,278.73 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
