Goobergunchia was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 10

The Liberal Unitary Republic of Goobergunchia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Willow Wolowitz with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.787 billion Goobergunchians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goobergunch City. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goobergunchian economy, worth a remarkable 2,834 trillion knugels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,376 knugels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goobergunchia's national animal is the red-tailed hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Goobergunchia is ranked 98,716th in the world and 2,796th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 19.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
