The Inestimably Holy Empire of Gooblaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Chosen One with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.084 billion Gooblarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goobla. The average income tax rate is 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gooblarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,943 trillion Goobles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 350,979 Goobles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, and survivors of the Great Internet Flame War often recount horror stories of banhammers and DOS attacks. Crime is totally unknown. Gooblaria's national animal is the Hyena, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gooblaria is ranked 19,750th in the world and 76th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,537.34 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
