The Federal Republic of Gorzi is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Michele d'Angelo with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.672 billion Gorzians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gorzi City. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gorzian economy, worth a remarkable 2,209 trillion Gors a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 288,058 Gors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime is totally unknown. Gorzi's national animal is the Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kindness.

Gorzi is ranked 52,447th in the world and 84th in New Western Empire for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.76 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
