The Democratic Technomancy of Gurkland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mitriel Vulanio with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 13.376 billion Gurklandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheoth. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gurklandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,783 trillion Freigelds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 357,594 Freigelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation excels at displacement, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. 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 206,149th in the world and 9th in Legion of Light for Most Avoided, scoring 0.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
