The United Kingdom of Goldenbourg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Philip with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.504 billion Goldenbourgishes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Vertin. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goldenbourgish economy, worth 356 trillion Rings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,226 Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Goldenbourgish watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Great Vertin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Goldenbourg's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Goldenbourg is ranked 176,797th in the world and 932nd in Europe for Safest, scoring 23.56 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
