The Federal Republic of Gufand is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 611 million Gufands have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uruce. The average income tax rate is 30.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gufand economy, worth 36.8 trillion Gufand Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,156 Gufand Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, Gufand has designated Uruce as its capital city, news headlines usually include p-values, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gufand's national animal is the Gufand Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gufand is ranked 39,093rd in the world and 118th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,263.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
