The Avo❤️Avo of Gorundu is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 3.932 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, 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 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Gorundan economy, worth 100 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 Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Average income is 25,508 avocados, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Gorundu is ranked 71,125th in the world and 3,120th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 994.58 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
