The Theocracy of The Golden Carp is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 138 million Golden Carpians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.4%.

The very strong Golden Carpian economy, worth 9.28 trillion Scaals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 67,271 Scaals, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

International terrorists often get their weapons supply in The Golden Carp, voting is compulsory, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Golden Carp's national animal is the Koi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Golden Carp is ranked 95,958th in the world and 3,891st in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 90.11 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
