The Republic of Gluponija is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Blagojche Kostovski with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.548 billion Gluponijans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pamtikurevo. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gluponijan economy, worth 164 trillion prcaloes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,989 prcaloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, the nation's youth voluntarily goes to bed early out of sheer tiredness from their working days, Bambi has been banned, and school children declare that teachers "may confiscate our toys but they can never take our FREEDOM". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gluponija's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Blagojchevism.

Gluponija is ranked 19,968th in the world and 547th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,146.72 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
