The Father Knows Best State of Golgorna is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by -data expunged- with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.209 billion Golgornans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unlondon. The average income tax rate is 63.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Golgornan economy, worth 173 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,907 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, major cities run on potato batteries, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Golgorna's national animal is the 20 mm autocannon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Golgorna is ranked 146,955th in the world and 6,354th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 291.36 Tourists Per Hour.
