The Most Serene Republic of Goshai is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 325 million Goshaians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 43.0%.

The strong Goshaian economy, worth 21.7 trillion Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,913 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goshai's national animal is the Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Goshai is ranked 88,149th in the world and 179th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Smartest Citizens, with 34.34 quips per hour.
