The Mythical State of Gorgondria is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sir Goat Longhorn with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 9.233 billion Gorgondrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Little-Gorgondria-On-The-Shore. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gorgondrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,973 trillion Pygmy Goats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 213,700 Pygmy Goats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, large sections of Gorgondria have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime is totally unknown. Gorgondria's national animal is the Pygmy Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Goatism.

Gorgondria is ranked 1,596th in the world and 42nd in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.5 Years.
