The third, encompassing Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Glubbdubrib, and Japan, is a kind of satellite inhabited by absurdly impractical scientists, and the fourth, the Country of the Houyhnhnms, is governed by horses who treat humans as filthy animals. Gullivers' fantastic adventures were read at different levels, as a travel book and also as a powerful satire on human nature. The text is based on that of 1735, incorporating revisions by Swift of the first edition."@en ;
