The Empire of Gudmund is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Albani Gudmund with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.8 billion Gudmundians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horah. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gudmundian economy, worth 711 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 122,696 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and Gudmund's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gudmund's national animal is the Sarcosuchus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gudmund is ranked 9,954th in the world and 5th in The Local Cluster for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,623.11 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
