The Oceanic Empire of Ghojingles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caesar with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.213 billion Ghojis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metrovopolis. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ghojian economy, worth a remarkable 3,620 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, quite specialized black market in Retail, Soda Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. 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 223,333 Blue Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, and leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ghojingles's national animal is the Lobster, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Absurdism.

Ghojingles is ranked 2,038th in the world and 76th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 198,889.35 Standard Monetary Units.
