Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Goodclark is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Yohann Gluzterschmit with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.173 billion Goodclarkians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy isn'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 35.6%.

The all-consuming Goodclarkian economy, worth 734 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 102,347 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, the military has declared that 'a woman's place is in the mess hall', mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and Yohann Gluzterschmit claims to be the epitome of family values. 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 160th in Libertatem and 96,028th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -160.222 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
