Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Goodclark is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Yohann Gluzterschmit with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.925 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.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'Reaben City. The average income tax rate is 31.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Goodclarkian economy, worth 701 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,297 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodclark's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Goodclark is ranked 7th in Libertatem and 12,117th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 55 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
