The Federal Republic of Gowinia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Thomas Whittington with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.591 billion Gowinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strunmahrath. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gowinian economy, worth 485 trillion septims a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,798 septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Gowinia flights to avoid the pay lavatories, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, and elderly prisoners with severe dementia are reminded hourly that they are evil people by helpful nurse-wardens. Crime is totally unknown. Gowinia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shrekism.

Gowinia is ranked 35,188th in the world and 1,576th in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 726.91 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
