The Goldonian Republic of Piste-Land is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Simeon Gots with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.255 billion Goldonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gonedha. The average income tax rate is 32.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Goldonian economy, worth 541 trillion Goldonian Parrels a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,063 Goldonian Parrels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government is seen to favor Catholics, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Piste-Land's national animal is the Ground Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Piste-Land is ranked 8,740th in the world and 8th in Equinox for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 55.21 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
