The Most Omnipotent Government of The Greater Gothic Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Her Imperial Majesty Empress Victoria II with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.665 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of World Capital Gothica - New Rome. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Gothic economy, worth 226 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. Average income is 61,816 crows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Gothic selfishness, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home. 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 38,175th in the world and 35th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,289.7 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
