The Democratic Technomancy of Gurkland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mitriel Vulanio with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.859 billion Gurklandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken 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 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gurklandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,588 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 376,089 Freigelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Mitriel Vulanio can be seen doing doughnuts in a new Rambogini, nude art is becoming wildly popular, third world countries are rich in "I Love Sheoth" t-shirts, and movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens. 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 7,350th in the world and 2nd in Happy Utopia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 66.23 Bank.
