The Goth Kingdom of Gothian Crimea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Southern Cross Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, rampant corporate plagiarism, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.949 billion Goths are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Super Dimension Fortress Acre. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Goth economy, worth 448 trillion Gozecks a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 230,366 Gozecks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,219,265 per year while the poor average 23,074, a ratio of 52.8 to 1.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, metal detectors at school gates make sure that teenagers are carrying at least one sidearm, war criminals are given full state funerals, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gothian Crimea's national animal is the Silver Roc, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gothic Church.

Gothian Crimea is ranked 164,929th in the world and 14th in PCM Nirn for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 314.77 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
