LeaderAleki Kuresa


The People's Republic of Gunov is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Aleki Kuresa with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.274 billion Gunovians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savalua. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The thriving Gunovian economy, worth 164 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 129,303 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and politicians are often referred to as thesauruses behind their backs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gunov's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alekiism.

Gunov is ranked 183,155th in the world and 4,115th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
