The Democratic Technomancy of Gurkland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mitriel Vulanio with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.963 billion Gurklandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheoth. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Gurklandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,652 trillion Freigelds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 377,779 Freigelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy is based upon the principle of sieve and take, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gurkland's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Madokaism.

Gurkland is ranked 228th in the world and 1st in Happy Utopia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 14,385.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
