The Democratic Republic of Goldinea is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 142 million Goldineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Goldinean economy, worth 5.92 trillion Goldinean dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 41,661 Goldinean dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goldinea's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Goldinea is ranked 192,243rd in the world and 2nd in ENSA for Most Pro-Market, scoring -86.88 on the Rand Index.
