The Well-Meaning Democracy of Govornia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Blake West with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.22 billion Govornians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Govopolis. The average income tax rate is 78.4%.

The powerhouse Govornian economy, worth 101 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,475 Standard Monetary Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime is totally unknown. Govornia's national animal is the Omnipede, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Govornia is ranked 10,472nd in the world and 599th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 174.35 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
