The Ubiquitous missile silos of Mushroom Gorge is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by anarchy with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, flagrant waste-dumping, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.475 billion Mushroom Gorgers are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mushroom City. The average income tax rate is 13.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mushroom Gorger economy, worth 325 trillion Mushroom credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 93,549 Mushroom credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Recognizing the Mushroom Gorger flag qualifies you for citizenship, the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, the government's only official statement on the burning down of Mushroom City was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', and police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mushroom Gorge's national animal is the koopa troopa, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mushroom Gorge is ranked 280,507th in the world and 77th in Callista for Lowest Crime Rates, with 27.48 law-abiding acts per hour.
