Population2.874 billion



The People's Republic of Gukapub is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.874 billion Gukapubians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gukapubian economy, worth 559 trillion baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 194,798 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

First-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gukapub's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gukapub is ranked 166,612th in the world and 8,983rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 27.17 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
