The Democratic People's Republic of Gwerq is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Malintzin Eti'ulu with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.697 billion Gwerqians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kobistania. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The all-consuming Gwerqian economy, worth 365 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 98,830 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Kobistania for fear of causing a fuss, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gwerq's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gwerq is ranked 227,761st in the world and 889th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -7.49 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
