The Oceanic Empire of Ghojingles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.905 billion Ghojis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metrovopolis. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ghojian economy, worth a remarkable 4,832 trillion Blue Notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 347,512 Blue Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, overweight people receive reparations checks from fast-food chains, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and adult stores are all sold out of whips. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ghojingles's national animal is the Lobster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is The Cult of the Eternal.

Ghojingles is ranked 215,593rd in the world and 4,910th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 25.86 years.
