The Goddess of The Gods is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Goddess of the Gods with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, devout population of 11.612 billion Godsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Environment, with Industry, Spirituality, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while International Aid and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam or Tequesquitengo or SLP. The average income tax rate is 17.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Godsian economy, worth 404 trillion Planets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,869 Planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, colonial subjects have Godsian culture shoved down their throats, entire families are dragged into counseling whenever children fight on a playground, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive. The Gods's national animal is the Beast, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Gods is ranked 167,348th in the world and 11th in San Francisco for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring -4.47 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
