The Zombie Doom Snake of Gurou is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Simoji with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.313 billion Gurouans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WiyNei. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Gurouan economy, worth 141 trillion Iousies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 107,674 Iousies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
The fate of the world literally rests on Simoji's fingers, singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland, the might of the entire Gurouan Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and WiyNei has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The North Pacific. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gurou's national animal is the Deadly Garden Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worship of Omnipotent Danger Noodle.
