The Final Episode of Gauda Prime is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kerr Avon with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 32.738 billion Gauda Primeans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woodland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.8%.

The all-consuming Gauda Primean economy, worth a remarkable 2,212 trillion sevens a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 67,596 sevens, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Troublemakers just happen to be reassigned to distant mining operations, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, opposition party MPs campaign shirtless to show off their numerous lash scars, and the sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gauda Prime's national animal is the blake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gauda Prime is ranked 1,697th in the world and 1st in Wyndia for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 4,133.41 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
