The Federal Republic of Gufand is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Gosh Uart with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 6.706 billion Gufands 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 prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uruce. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gufand economy, worth 401 trillion Gufand Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,945 Gufand Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens often pray for divine guidance in supermarkets, indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gufand's national animal is the Gufand Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Gufand is ranked 255,174th in the world and 183rd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.56 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
