The Republic of Godakiland is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 576 million Godakilandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Godakilandian economy, worth 71.7 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 124,492 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 451,819 per year while the poor average 24,430, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Godakiland's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Godakiland is ranked 146,508th in the world and 14th in The High Wilderness for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 7.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
