The Republic of Gouverne is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Scott Macron with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.051 billion Gouverneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Butbut. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gouvernean economy, worth 602 trillion Argents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,762 Argents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, polite commuters on the Butbut Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, the nation leads The Free Nations Region in per capita stalking, and chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth. Crime is totally unknown. Gouverne's national animal is the Iyora, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gouverne is ranked 193,603rd in the world and 193rd in The Free Nations Region for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.09 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
