The Intricate Enigma of Govornia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Austin West IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.96 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 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Govornian economy, worth 174 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,822 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, G-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime is totally unknown. Govornia's national animal is the Freshwater Blue Crabfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Govornia is ranked 115,148th in the world and 6,049th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.44 on the Rand Index.
