The Republic of Gormwood is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Silva with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.822 billion Gormwoodians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Gorma. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Gormwoodian economy, worth 210 trillion Pieces a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 74,690 Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gormwood's national animal is the Chimaera, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gormwood is ranked 92,393rd in the world and 4,494th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,199.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
