The People's Republic of Gunov is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aleki Kuresa with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.367 billion Gunovians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savalua. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The powerhouse Gunovian economy, worth 185 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 135,977 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gunov's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alekiism.

Gunov is ranked 233,450th in the world and 7,938th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.08 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
