Empire of Gora

Population5.52 billion

LeaderGreat Garzo

AnimalGreat Goran Lion

The Republic of Empire of Gora is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Great Garzo with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 5.52 billion Gorans 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goventry. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goran economy, worth 627 trillion Golaps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,743 Golaps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", sly spies try to rely on national allies so that they don't die, international negotiations always lead to a lot of missile-laneous expenses, and the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Gora's national animal is the Great Goran Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Empire of Gora is ranked 9,655th in the world and 23rd in The Hole To Hide In for Most Developed, scoring 90.43 on the Human Development Index.
