The Goblin Steampunk empire of Relrov is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grurald with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.598 billion Goblins are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stempankia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.4%.

The powerhouse Relrovian economy, worth 146 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 91,522 Drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 299,649 per year while the poor average 20,995, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Relrov's national animal is the Rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Relrov is ranked 61,799th in the world and 9th in Wealth for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 77.53 on the Hayek Index.
