The Retired Soldier of Golden Hind is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Boss with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.941 billion Golden Hindians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Exceeding Treasure. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Golden Hindian economy, worth 994 trillion solid gold hinds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,252 solid gold hinds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes. Crime is totally unknown. Golden Hind's national animal is the golden hind, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Golden Hind is ranked 9,170th in the world and 6th in Mariner Trench for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,472.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
