The Republic of Goatentah is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Maynard with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.053 billion Goatentahians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Goatentahian economy, worth 188 trillion goats a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,809 goats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goatentah's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Goatentah is ranked 122,484th in the world and 6,234th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.28 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
