The Sustained Optimum of Govornia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Austin West with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.11 billion Govornians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Govopolis. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Govornian economy, worth 193 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,824 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Govopolis Mountain Cranes' triumph against long odds, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime is totally unknown. Govornia's national animal is the Mountain Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Weak Atheism.

Govornia is ranked 142,997th in the world and 7,596th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 476.69 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
