The Armed Republic of Gunyria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Thorvald the Liberator with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.505 billion Gunyrians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuttenstadt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The powerhouse Gunyrian economy, worth 223 trillion Thorvald's crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is 89,296 Thorvald's crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 664,403 per year while the poor average 3,541, a ratio of 187 to 1.

The streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, Thorvald the Liberator has just been declared ruler of Gunyria in an international press conference, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gunyria's national animal is the Double-headed Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Arianism.

Gunyria is ranked 168,775th in the world and 3rd in Southern Army for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 492.17 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
