The United Socialist States of Goper is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 182 million Goperians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Goperian economy, worth 4.20 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 23,099 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, military spending is on the increase, and woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goper's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Goper is ranked 154,808th in the world and 40th in Noxus pact for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 6,837.53 Standard Monetary Units.
