The Nation-Sized Lounge Chair of Govornia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Austin West with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.212 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 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Govornian economy, worth 303 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,632 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. Crime is totally unknown. Govornia's national animal is the Bluebie Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Weak Atheism.

Govornia is ranked 6,689th in the world and 392nd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.21 Years.
