The Morally Illuminated Citizens of Govornia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the public with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.14 billion Govornians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Govopolis. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Govornian economy, worth 495 trillion Govocreds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,469 Govocreds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Govornian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs. Crime is totally unknown. Govornia's national animal is the Stripe-Beaked Stork, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Govornia is ranked 195,001st in the world and 9,342nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
