The Democratic Technomancy of Gurkland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mitriel Vulanio with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.223 billion Gurklandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheoth. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gurklandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,753 trillion Freigelds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 334,464 Freigelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gurkland's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Madokaism.

Gurkland is ranked 40,700th in the world and 1st in Happy Utopia for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
