The Dirty but Lucrative Affairs of A Goblinoid Merchant is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Happy with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.195 billion Goblinoid Merchants enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Happy's Funland. The average income tax rate is 6.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Goblinoid economy, worth 927 trillion GOLDS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 82,852 GOLDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, the Grasshopper stadiums are open 24/7, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. A Goblinoid Merchant's national animal is the Grasshopper, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is CONSUM.

A Goblinoid Merchant is ranked 195,244th in the world and 12th in The Embassy for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 309.41 tourists per hour.
