The Incorporated States of Gurtistania is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 936 million Gurtistanians 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 prioritizes Administration, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 18.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gurtistanian economy, worth 57.3 trillion Gurts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 61,213 Gurts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The The Citadel Times is sold out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gurtistania's national animal is the Gurt.

Gurtistania is ranked 91,083rd in the world and 3,010th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,695.77 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
