The Sepulcrist State of Gopnikea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nikola Hadares with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 10.086 billion Sepulcrists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strateigor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sepulcrisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,602 trillion Kuurakas a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 357,213 Kuurakas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,116,708 per year while the poor average 87,674, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, awkward tourists are offered the 'unique experience' of rodeo clown, and blind dates tend to result in bruised shins. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gopnikea's national animal is the Osmiurk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sepulcrisian paganism.

Gopnikea is ranked 9,046th in the world and 10th in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,459.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
