The Tri-Planetary Coalition of Glurponia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.64 billion Glurpons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Megalopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Glurpone economy, worth a remarkable 1,558 trillion standardized units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 204,057 standardized units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. Crime is totally unknown. Glurponia's national animal is the tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Homestuck.

Glurponia is ranked 219,252nd in the world and 9,948th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -613.63 on the Hayek Index.
