The Young Pope of Golfia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consul and Lord Protector and Doge with a fair hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.871 billion Romando-Belvetians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lumiére. The average income tax rate is 92.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Golfian economy, worth a remarkable 1,240 trillion Romandian Lira and Belvetian Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 211,351 Romandian Lira and Belvetian Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

For just a few extra Romandian Lira and Belvetian Francs Romando-Belvetians can get new driving records with their new cars, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, and Consul and Lord Protector and Doge's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Golfia's national animal is the Eagle and Wolf, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Golfia is ranked 35,189th in the world and 13th in Independent Order for Most Pro-Market, scoring 68 on the Rand Index.
