The Empire of Gunfreak is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, avant-garde cinema, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless population of 32.835 billion Gunfreakians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gunfreak City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Gunfreakian economy, worth a remarkable 3,329 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 101,386 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gunfreak's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gunfreak is ranked 99,972nd in the world and 2,447th in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 42 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
