The Catholic Republic of Goodclark is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Yohann Gluzterschmit with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.044 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 59%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 3rd in Good Ol Boyz and 27,985th in the world for Most Conservative, scoring 64 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
