The Most Omnipotent Government of The Greater Gothic Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her Imperial Majesty Empress Victoria II with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.152 billion Goths are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of World-Capital Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Gothic economy, worth 135 trillion crows a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 42,988 crows, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, it's always rabbit season, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Gothic Empire's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Imperial Cult.

The Greater Gothic Empire is ranked 177,647th in the world and 32nd in Psychotic Dictatorships for Highest Drug Use, scoring 34 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
