Goldman-Sachs

The Kingdom of Goldman-Sachs is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, avowedly heterosexual populace, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.31 billion Goldman-Sachsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 71.1%.

The all-consuming Goldman-Sachsian economy, worth 192 trillion coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,511 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, and Goldman-Sachsian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goldman-Sachs's national animal is the consumer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Goldman-Sachs is ranked 33,332nd in the world and 1st in Algretia for Largest Governments, scoring 21.4 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
