The Tri-Planetary Coalition of Glurponia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.84 billion Glurpons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Mars. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Glurpone economy, worth a remarkable 1,946 trillion standardized units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 220,171 standardized units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways. Crime is totally unknown. Glurponia's national animal is the monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Homestuck.

Glurponia is ranked 1,520th in the world and 94th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,727.41 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
