Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Goodclark is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ahmed Almasi with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.739 billion Goodclarkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Administration and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'Reaben City. The average income tax rate is 30.2%.

The all-consuming Goodclarkian economy, worth 932 trillion Goodclarkian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 106,732 Goodclarkian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, Ahmed Almasi's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodclark's national animal is the Stallion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Goodclark is ranked 71,634th in the world and 1,994th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 18.25 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
