The Empire of Goldenfront is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 303 million Goldenfrontians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Goldenfrontian economy, worth 36.9 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 121,842 Golds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 487,127 per year while the poor average 20,475, a ratio of 23.8 to 1.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Golden City's water use, Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets, and vacationing Goldenfrontians expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Goldenfront's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Goldenfront is ranked 148,448th in the world and 495th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -13 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
