The Retired Soldier of Golden Hind is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Boss with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.611 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 enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Exceeding Treasure. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Golden Hindian economy, worth 608 trillion solid gold hinds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,942 solid gold hinds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, the Golden Hindian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is totally unknown. Golden Hind's national animal is the golden hind, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
