The Incorporated States of Gorhonia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 695 million Gorhons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sisyphus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.6%.

The strong Gorhonian economy, worth 48.0 trillion Rows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 69,040 Rows, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 204,257 per year while the poor average 18,333, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Police officers find government bureaucracy more terrifying than most serial killers, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Sisyphus Natural History Museum, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Gorhonia's national animal is the Ants, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gorhonia is ranked 220,981st in the world and 6,424th in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 8.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
