|Leader||King Paul IV|
|Faith||The King Paul IV Church|
The Kingdom of Goodrum is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Paul IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.287 billion Goodrumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Curtis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Goodrumian economy, worth 229 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 100,447 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 349,998 per year while the poor average 20,989, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.
G-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", and doctors ask for written consent before making eye contact with patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodrum's national animal is the Castle crusher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The King Paul IV Church.
