The Technocratic Military State of Goldgamia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Baran I with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.539 billion Goldgamians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldgamia City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Goldgamian economy, worth a remarkable 2,533 trillion Goldgamian Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 387,466 Goldgamian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goldgamia's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Goldgamia is ranked 112,539th in the world and 8th in The Global Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 44.22 on the Rand Index.
