The Himalayan Field Rat Paradise of Gonrati is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade York with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.048 billion Gonratians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York City. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gonratian economy, worth 172 trillion Gonrati Frajs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,442 Gonrati Frajs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, transgender and agender are on the education agenda, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gonrati's national animal is the Himalayan Field Rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ratism.

Gonrati is ranked 17,005th in the world and 537th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,183.49 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
