The Avocado Wonderland of Gorundu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by A V O Cado with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.881 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 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 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gorundan economy, worth 755 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 69,411 avocados, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government expenses are beyond compare, Gorundu recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people. 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 8,205th in the world and 416th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 123.69 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
