The Federation of Gormhuth is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Henry McBloom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.417 billion Gormhuthians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halbe. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gormhuthian economy, worth 142 trillion Gorms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 100,514 Gorms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Most ambassadors from Gormhuth retire only a few years after being appointed, coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gormhuth's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Gormhuth is ranked 13,551st in the world and 385th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,514.01 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
