The Representative Democracy of Govornia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 714 million Govornians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Govornian economy, worth 52.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 73,650 Standard Monetary Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again. Crime is totally unknown. Govornia's national animal is the Infinipede, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Govornia is ranked 127,456th in the world and 6,361st in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -1.55 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
