The Kingdom of Gotland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.596 billion Goths are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Gothic economy, worth 64.7 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 17,980 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, nation-building is the new national pastime, and employers are keenest on employees who lack family values. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gotland's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gotland is ranked 151,424th in the world and 16th in Greater Olympus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 37.1 on the Hayek Index.
