The Flying V of Goose Steppe is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 786 million Goose Steppers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flachland. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Goose Stepping economy, worth 66.0 trillion goose eggs a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,969 goose eggs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goose Steppe's national animal is the Steppengoose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Goose Steppe is ranked 13,604th in the world and 2nd in Monkey Island for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
