The Republic of Govem is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 3.815 billion Govemians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Govemian economy, worth 632 trillion Serties a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 165,873 Serties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains. 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 3,166th in the world and 59th in 10000 Islands for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 47,006.66 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
