The Democratic Republic of Goomble is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jimbo with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.358 billion Goombleans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chambéry 2. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Goomblean economy, worth 85.1 trillion Bumblebucks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,671 Bumblebucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Goomble, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Goomblean restaurants, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime is totally unknown. Goomble's national animal is the Majestic Sea Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Goomble is ranked 36,721st in the world and 1st in The Frumpster Dumpster for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,861.57 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
