The Moderately Liberal Unitary Republic of Goobergunchia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kalden Hansen with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cheerful population of 24.531 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, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goobergunch City. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Goobergunchian economy, worth a remarkable 4,720 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 192,442 knugels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. 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 1,583rd in the world and 44th in the Rejected Realms for Best Weather, with 608 meters of sunlight.
