Goblin Gang

Population1.235 billion

LeaderLiam de Ganarg


The Commonwealth of Goblin Gang is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Liam de Ganarg with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.235 billion Goblin Ganglians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Goblin Ganglianus economy, worth 140 trillion Ooblecks 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 impressive 114,083 Ooblecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, they say the best compromise leaves everyone feeling a little unarmed, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and small shoes often wash up on the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goblin Gang's national animal is the Lee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Goblin Gang is ranked 14,897th in the world and 623rd in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 44.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
