The Actian State of TheGoldCoast is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.079 billion Actians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darwin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The powerhouse Actian economy, worth 97.1 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 89,974 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,152 per year while the poor average 14,548, a ratio of 25.3 to 1.

Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, TheGoldCoast has designated Darwin as its capital city, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and prohibition has allowed a Maxtopian immigrant known only as "Nipples" to establish an illicit breast milk syndicate. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. TheGoldCoast's national animal is the Gold Gull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

TheGoldCoast is ranked 147,107th in the world and 164th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 23.5 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
