The MT Army Protector of Goltroll is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.623 billion Goltrollians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azgard. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Goltrollian economy, worth 626 trillion Citas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 49,653 Citas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Airport security is provided by private companies, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Goltroll Blood Tithe, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goltroll's national animal is the Vippertooth Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Goltroll is ranked 194,675th in the world and 2nd in Anti Nazi Alliance for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.95 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
