The Principality of A Good Night is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Sandman with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.456 billion Good Nightians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ZzzzTopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.6%.

The all-consuming Good Nightian economy, worth 118 trillion Ounces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 81,140 Ounces, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, the Good Nightian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, the military struggles with recruitment, and male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Good Night's national animal is the Spirit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sleepism.

A Good Night is ranked 96,713th in the world and 1st in Good Night for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
