The Democratic Technomancy of Gurkland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mitriel Vulanio with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.129 billion Gurklandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheoth. The average income tax rate is 91.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Gurklandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,667 trillion Freigelds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 355,493 Freigelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sheep-like political loyalists repeat the mantra "one wheel bad, three wheels good", rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, days begin with afternoon tea, and multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gurkland's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Madokaism.

Gurkland is ranked 159,631st in the world and 2nd in Happy Utopia for Most Extreme, scoring 10.88 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
