The %%The North Pacific%% of Gorundu is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 1.483 billion Gorundans 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The WALL. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Gorundan economy, worth 27.4 trillion upvotes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is 18,495 upvotes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gorundu's national animal is the staffer.
