The Grand Empire of Gurori is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Hitori with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.173 billion Guronese 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fuyutoshi. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Guronese economy, worth a remarkable 1,261 trillion Guronese Yen a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,915 Guronese Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bris parties are all the rage, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gurori's national animal is the Guronese Snow Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Gurori is ranked 95,881st in the world and 37th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,095.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
