The People's Republic of Gorbachev Wazwright is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.341 billion Gorbachev Wazwrightians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Gorbachev Wazwrightian economy, worth 17.8 trillion Rubles 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Gambling. 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 7,605 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gorbachev Wazwright's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gorbachev Wazwright is ranked 117,375th in the world and 6th in The Union of Religious Nations for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 825.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
