The Oceanic Empire of Ghojingles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Eternal Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.131 billion Ghojis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metrovopolis. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ghojian economy, worth a remarkable 5,794 trillion Blue Notes a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 477,665 Blue Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, mysterious black helicopters menace farmers to ensure compliance with straitjacketing agricultural policies, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime is totally unknown. 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 83,298th in the world and 1,920th in the Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 185 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
