The Republic of Goatentah is a massive, safe nation, ruled by John Maynard with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 2.727 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, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Goatentahian economy, worth 170 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 62,376 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 78,459th in the world and 4,193rd in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 3,379.06 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
