The United Kingdom of Goram is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jed Bartlet with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, humorless population of 27.396 billion Goramites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, liberal 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 98.1%.

The all-consuming Goramian economy, worth a remarkable 3,903 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 142,493 Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, Jed Bartlet's new office is 6 by 8 feet with steel walls and a barred door, and the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose. 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 12,171st in the world and 1st in The Great Monarchical Nations for Highest Poor Incomes, with 101,927.7 Standard Monetary Units.
