The United Regions of Glurponia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by John Doe II Junior with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.045 billion Glurpons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gleamingville. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glurpone economy, worth 682 trillion kilojoules a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,375 kilojoules, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the Liberal Progressive and Progressive Liberal parties swear that they have totally different ideologies, Glurpone companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glurponia's national animal is the tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Homestuck.

Glurponia is ranked 12,004th in the world and 364th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 217.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
