The Democratic Technomancy of Gurkland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mitriel Direnni with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.291 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 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Gurklandian economy, worth a remarkable 6,869 trillion Freigelds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 397,267 Freigelds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, unemployed taxi drivers ironically use self-driving cabs to reach employment offices, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. 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 15,882nd in the world and 29th in Yggdrasil for Most Patriotic, with 38.21 flags saluted per person per day.
