The Country of Goraria is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 739 million Gorarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsunsk. The average income tax rate is 27.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gorarian economy, worth 76.3 trillion Garian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 103,295 Garian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people, serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, and there's a big brother in every prison. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goraria's national animal is the People, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Goraria is ranked 103,588th in the world and 207th in United Kingdom for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,216.19 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
