The United Proletarian Republics of Gorbatov is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Konstantin Voroshilov with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.346 billion Gorbatovics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valozhyn. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gorbatovic economy, worth a remarkable 1,964 trillion Kredyts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 210,222 Kredyts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, and left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gorbatov's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gorbatov is ranked 167,272nd in the world and 17th in New Atlas for Most Devout, with 2.2 Prayers Per Hour.
