LeaderAleki Kuresa


The People's Republic of Gunov is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Aleki Kuresa with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 936 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 95.3%.

The very strong Gunovian economy, worth 100 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 107,900 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, and there is a thriving underground gay scene. 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 188,029th in the world and 3,770th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 36.1 billion Standard Monetary Units.
