The Moderately Liberal Unitary Republic of Goobergunchia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kalden Hansen with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.747 billion Goobergunchians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goobergunch City. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Goobergunchian economy, worth a remarkable 3,824 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 184,324 knugels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitration is mightier than the sword, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and conspiracy theorists allege Goobergunch City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. 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 454th in the world and 15th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 46,151.85 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
