The Republic of Govem is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 5.452 billion Govemians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Govemian economy, worth a remarkable 1,026 trillion Serties a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 188,286 Serties, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Govemian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Govem, and unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Govem's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Govem is ranked 100,618th in the world and 562nd in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 11.67 Flags saluted per person per day.
