The Open Nation of Gourgastly is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Spooky Reaper with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 1.017 billion Reapers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Demi. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gourgastlyian economy, worth 79.7 trillion floofs 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 78,411 floofs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gourgastly's national animal is the Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gourgastly is ranked 12,790th in the world and 2nd in Union of Queer Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 1 Valid Endorsements.
