The Femocratic Republic of Goldstone is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Julia with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.285 billion Goldstoneans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vamari. The average income tax rate is 48.7%.

The powerhouse Goldstonean economy, worth 104 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,241 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, mothers drive their college-graduate children to work, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goldstone's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Goldstone is ranked 29,105th in the world and 8th in Refugia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 44 Kickbacks Per Hour.
