The Republic of Golden Gophers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 29.885 billion Golden Gophersians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Golden Gophersian economy, worth a remarkable 6,776 trillion golden gophers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 226,767 golden gophers, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Golden Gophers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Golden Gophers's national animal is the golden gopher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Golden Gophers is ranked 158,018th in the world and 3,392nd in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.68 percentage of bribes refused.
