The Preponderance of Goethe is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe with an iron fist, and notable for its enforced nudity, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.041 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weimar. The average income tax rate is 38.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goethean economy, worth a remarkable 2,016 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,844 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

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 a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Atheism.

Goethe is ranked 85th in Nederland and 108,344th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -41 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
