The Anglo-Franco Tea Kingdom of Gorbastan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Minister Elliot Pearce with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.66 billion Gorbastanis 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torselchester. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gorbastani economy, worth a remarkable 1,464 trillion Crowns 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, 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 314,205 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Torselchester's water use, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gorbastan's national animal is the Bexford Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Afternoon Tea.

Gorbastan is ranked 7,139th in the world and 209th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.79 Years.
