The Wildlands of Golden Enclave is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Salmagundy with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 8.115 billion Golden Enclaveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itharos. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Golden Enclavean economy, worth 196 trillion Moonstones a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 24,204 Moonstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the government funds large training centres to turn Owls into functioning members of society, and voting is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Golden Enclave's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Dreaming.

Golden Enclave is ranked 240,938th in the world and 147th in Caer Sidi for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.59 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
