The Principality of Gocia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 392 million Gocians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levingstad. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gocian economy, worth 15.6 trillion Coronas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,846 Coronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gocia's national animal is the Lobo Gocés, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gocia is ranked 84,345th in the world and 185th in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 58.4 on the Human Development Index.
