The Zombie Doom Snake of Gurou is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Simoji with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.697 billion Gurouans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WiyNei. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gurouan economy, worth 181 trillion Iousies 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 impressive 107,157 Iousies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The fate of the world literally rests on Simoji's fingers, singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland, the might of the entire Gurouan Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and WiyNei has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The North Pacific. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gurou's national animal is the Deadly Garden Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worship of Omnipotent Danger Noodle.

Gurou is ranked 119,481st in the world and 6,081st in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -3.46 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
