The Intercooperative Counties of Govornia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Austin West with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.275 billion Govornians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Govopolis. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Govornian economy, worth 210 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,599 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime is totally unknown. Govornia's national animal is the Mountain Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Weak Atheism.

Govornia is ranked 36,916th in the world and 1,907th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 57.08 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
