The Free Land of Goodsprings Valley is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Trudy with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.983 billion Goodsprings Valleyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goodsprings. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goodsprings Valleyian economy, worth 696 trillion caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,851 caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A video of Trudy wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, Trudy's reputation is hard as nails, and the blind lead the blind in social welfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodsprings Valley's national animal is the bighorner, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Goodsprings Valley is ranked 10,235th in the world and 18th in The Free Nations Region for Most Inclusive, scoring 195.46 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
