The People's Theocracy of United Good is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Reverend Al Greene with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.044 billion United Goodies are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soul City. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout United Good after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime is totally unknown. United Good's national animal is the timber wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Truth, and its currency is the Good Dollar.

United Good is ranked 4th in Manitoba and 10,071st in the world for Safest, scoring 332.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
