The Imperial Federation of Goyanes is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Anthony with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.923 billion Goyaneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gojannesstad. The average income tax rate is 23.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goyanean economy, worth a remarkable 2,002 trillion Drams a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,918 Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Goyanean military, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Goyanes's national animal is the Gojan Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Goyanes is ranked 121,479th in the world and 5,050th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 20.99 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
