The Unpleasant Drainpipe of Gurou is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bronzefishy with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.178 billion Gurouans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WiyNei. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gurouan economy, worth a remarkable 2,049 trillion Iousies 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 223,294 Iousies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and birdsong in the mountains has to be loud enough to drown out nearby jackhammers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gurou's national animal is the Deadly Garden Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worship of Omnipotent Danger Noodle.

Gurou is ranked 271,715th in the world and 13,083rd in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.62 crimes per hour.
