“Come for the sights. Stay for the robots.” Carl Marks

Location: The North Pacific
The United Regions of Glurponia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Carl Marks with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.234 billion Glurpons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gleamingville. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Glurpone economy, worth 752 trillion galactic units a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 143,753 galactic units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, the government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, Glurpone Gladiators is a ratings success, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Gleamingville. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glurponia's national animal is the tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Homestuck.
