The RaŽlist Republic of Goodclark is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ahmed Almasi with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.986 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, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'Reaben City. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goodclarkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,028 trillion Goodclarkian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,490 Goodclarkian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The clergy of RaŽlism remains a single-sex institution, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. 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 RaŽlism.

Goodclark is ranked 98,047th in the world and 4th in Nurtureia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.83 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
