The Republic of Guthra is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Jackie with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 839 million Guthrans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cauft. The average income tax rate is 24.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Guthran economy, worth 97.1 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 115,772 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Guthra's national animal is the White Tailed Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Guthra is ranked 75,914th in the world and 1,078th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 97.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
