Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Theocracy of United Good is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Reverend Al Greene with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 21.365 billion United Goodies love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soul City. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient United Gooder economy, worth a remarkable 2,620 trillion Good Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,672 Good Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A video of The Reverend Al Greene wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, the lactose-intolerant are force-fed cheese products with predictably gassy results, and adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears. Crime is totally unknown. United Good's national animal is the timber wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Truth.

United Good is ranked 80,752nd in the world and 3rd in Manitoba for Most Extreme, scoring 16.82 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
