Golinistan

The Allied States of Golinistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.259 billion Golinistanis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Golinistani economy, worth 168 trillion Nones 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,669 Nones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize Golinistan's beaches, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. Crime is totally unknown. Golinistan's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Golinistan is ranked 194,341st in the world and 328th in The Internationale for Most Pro-Market, scoring -88.89 on the Rand Index.
