The United Provinces of Gamhound is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Executor Jason Parenon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.922 billion Gamhoundish are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scorchburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Gamhoundish economy, worth a remarkable 5,679 trillion Gams 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 285,087 Gams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and flight attendants rip down curtains with revolutionary fervor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gamhound's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Eternal Conflagration.

Gamhound is ranked 199,863rd in the world and 109th in Yggdrasil for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.32 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
