The Socialist People's Democracy of Golanchia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Davit Purplinski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 19.755 billion Golanchans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golanchograd. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Golanchian economy, worth a remarkable 9,810 trillion Purroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 496,617 Purroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant. Crime is totally unknown. Golanchia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Golanchia is ranked 239,662nd in the world and 38th in North Korea for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -31.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
