The Socialist People's Democracy of Golanchia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chairman Davit Purplinski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 22.532 billion Golanchans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 an astonishing 10,641 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, and Book Publishing. 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 472,282 Purroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, the country is at the forefront of a 'peacekeeping' mission to secure power plants in war-torn Maxtopia, there are no more heroes any more, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 251st in the world and 1st in North Korea for Highest Poor Incomes, with 359,237.84 Standard Monetary Units.
