The Incorporated States of The Gothanita Isles is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 328 million Gothanita Islesians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The very strong Gothanita Islesian economy, worth 23.3 trillion Pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 70,977 Pesos, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 425,812 per year while the poor average 5,357, a ratio of 79.5 to 1.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the country is littered with broken homes, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Gothanita Isles's national animal is the Seagull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Gothanita Isles is ranked 207,283rd in the world and 9th in Card Farming Region for Highest Poor Incomes, with 5,357.38 Standard Monetary Units.
