The Commonwealth of Goldecia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chava Svetlova with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 13.474 billion Goldecians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The Goldecian economy, worth 727 trillion Goldecian Shekels a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,020 Goldecian Shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

People who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, tourists visit Goldecia to mass-moon Goldecian politicians, and Chava Svetlova's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goldecia's national animal is the Hamish Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Judaism.

Goldecia is ranked 57,775th in the world and 2nd in Demos for Most Developed, scoring 56.33 on the Human Development Index.
