The Federal Republic of Gulpee is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Timothy Beesle II with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 863 million Gulpedians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dales Beach. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gulpeean economy, worth 92.7 trillion Gulpedian Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 107,408 Gulpedian Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, there's a bright dawn ahead for Gulpee, sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gulpee's national animal is the Gulpedian Pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gulpee is ranked 21,166th in the world and 13th in The Democratika for Highest Food Quality, scoring 108.18 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
