The Republic of Gormwood is a huge, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 640 million Gormwoodians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Gormwoodian economy, worth 35.0 trillion Pieces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,626 Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gormwood's national animal is the Chimaera, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gormwood is ranked 60,048th in the world and 2,846th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 73.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
