The Sociopathic Democracy of Gunorium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mister Scoops with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.317 billion Gunorians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kablewyville. The average income tax rate is 8.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gunoriumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,607 trillion Miltary Rounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 407,167 Miltary Rounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Gunoriumian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, Kablewyville's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Gunorium's national animal is the Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Gun Runners.

Gunorium is ranked 526th in the world and 2nd in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 84,808.87 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
