The Catholic Republic of Goodclark is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Yohann Gluzterschmit with a fair hand, and renowned for its enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.22 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 large government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'Reaben City. The average income tax rate is 47.3%.
The all-consuming Goodclarkian economy, worth 509 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 81,931 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
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 a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodclark's national animal is the Tiger and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
Goodclark is ranked 2nd in Good Ol Boyz and 82,075th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3.3 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
