The Dream Within A Dream of All Good People is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Westwind with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 16.586 billion All Good Peoples are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Heart of the Sunrise. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming All Good Peoples economy, worth a remarkable 1,340 trillion Equiliants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,797 Equiliants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

90% of active duty AGPAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, conspiracy theorists allege The Heart of the Sunrise's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. All Good People's national animal is the Dream Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sacred Order of The Church of Westwind.

All Good People is ranked 66,335th in the world and 2,509th in the West Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 0.23 Stalins.
