OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Godfreaks is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Godfreak with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.79 billion Godfreaksians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jesusfreak. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Godfreaks's national animal is the lions, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the godfreaks.

Godfreaks is ranked 3rd in Loamhedge and 1,591st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 114 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
