The Goraria died of nuke of Goraria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Loren Ramball with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and smutty television. The democratic, devout population of 4.342 billion Gorariaballs 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forentriaball. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gorarian economy, worth 544 trillion Garian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,483 Garian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', army rations are served on silver platters, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goraria's national animal is the Damar Beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cultured Christianity.

Goraria is ranked 17,793rd in the world and 4th in Newlandia for Most Developed, scoring 85.7 on the Human Development Index.
