The United Proletarian Republics of Gorbatov is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Konstantin Voroshilov with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.532 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valozhyn. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gorbatovic economy, worth a remarkable 2,911 trillion Kredyts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 232,289 Kredyts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals are really screwed, concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas", both criminals and civilians are DOA, and hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers. 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 202,796th in the world and 12th in New Atlas for Rudest Citizens, with 26.08 Insults Per Minute.
