The United Kingdom of Goram is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jed Bartlet with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.942 billion Goramites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goram City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The all-consuming Goramian economy, worth a remarkable 3,278 trillion Sterlings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,900 Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Sterling charge on their phone bill, and the endangered saltwater humpback Lion is only seen in captivity programs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goram's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Goram is ranked 58,344th in the world and 1st in The Great Monarchical Nations for Most Politically Free, scoring 72 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
