The Himalayan Field Rat Paradise of Gonrati is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Rat Boy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 876 million Gonratians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York City. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gonratian economy, worth 77.4 trillion Gonrati Frajs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,311 Gonrati Frajs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, Rat Boy's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and Rat Boy has just been declared ruler of Gonrati in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gonrati's national animal is the Himalayan Field Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gonrati is ranked 217,513th in the world and 8,128th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -12.78 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
