The Ramifications of Goat Horns is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Goat with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.504 billion Goatees are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Important. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Retail and Gambling.
Citizens must pay to enjoy Goat Horns's pristine beaches, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, Goat Horns-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime is crippling. Goat Horns's national animal is the velociraptor, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is goat worship, and its currency is the shiny thing.
