The Catholic Republic of Goodclark is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Yohann Gluzterschmit with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.855 billion Goodclarkians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'Reaben City. The average income tax rate is 58%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Yohann Gluzterschmit's bedroom, O'Reaben City is a police state during international summits, the government is seen to favor Catholics, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodclark's national animal is the Tiger, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Dollar.

Goodclark is ranked 2nd in Good Ol Boyz and 40,886th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 82 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
