Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Preponderance of Goethe is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, enforced nudity, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.961 billion Goetheans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weimar. The average income tax rate is 38.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goethean economy, worth a remarkable 2,460 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,768 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, political activists are routinely executed, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and guns are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goethe's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Goethe is ranked 1,666th in the world and 6th in Nederland for Largest Black Market, with 357 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
