LeaderA V O Cado


The Avocado Wonderland of Gorundu is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by A V O Cado with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.853 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The WALL. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gorundan economy, worth 596 trillion avocados 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 67,415 avocados, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gorundu's national animal is the avocado, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Avocadism.

Gorundu is ranked 266,734th in the world and 7,370th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -128.63 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
