The People's Republic of Gunov is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 388 million 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, 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 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Gunovian economy, worth 25.5 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 quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 65,710 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest superhero movie features a caped Lion with adamantium claws, frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously". 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.

Gunov is ranked 29,258th in the world and 782nd in The East Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,984.9 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
