The Mont Noire Tea Kingdom of Gorbastan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Elliot Pearce with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.851 billion Gorbastanis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torselchester. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gorbastani economy, worth a remarkable 1,527 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 314,799 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gorbastan's national animal is the Bexford Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Afternoon Tea.

Gorbastan is ranked 125,327th in the world and 4,820th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 56.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
