The Egotistical Empire of WeAreTheGreatestan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mother Goose with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 34.904 billion Greatestanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The enormous, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Farfaraway. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.0%.

The very strong Greatest economy, worth a remarkable 2,320 trillion master coins 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 major contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 66,474 master coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 233,445 per year while the poor average 13,724, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, oracles predict landslide victories for Mother Goose for the next 50 years, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and protests are illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WeAreTheGreatestan's national animal is the goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of the Great Goose.

WeAreTheGreatestan is ranked 38,706th in the world and 4th in Travelling Region for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,624.55 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
