The Democratic Technomancy of Gurkland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mitriel Vulanio with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.968 billion Gurklandians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheoth. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Gurklandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,654 trillion Freigelds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 377,779 Freigelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy is based upon the principle of sieve and take, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gurkland's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Madokaism.

Gurkland is ranked 239,308th in the world and 5th in Happy Utopia for Fattest Citizens, with 0.99 Obesity Rate.
