The Republic of Gonsh is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 461 million Gonshians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gonrunshu City. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Gonshian economy, worth 40.9 trillion Gonrus a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 88,812 Gonrus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gonsh's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Gonsh is ranked 25,958th in the world and 1,250th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 76.87 on the Human Development Index.
