The Preponderance of Goethe is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 20.297 billion Goetheans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Commerce, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weimar. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Gambling and Automobile Manufacturing.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, political activists are routinely executed, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and guns are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goethe's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the guilder.

Goethe is ranked 83rd in Nederland and 93,414th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -21 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
