Goblin Gang

Population1.556 billion

LeaderLiam de Ganarg


The Commonwealth of Goblin Gang is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Liam de Ganarg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.556 billion Goblin Ganglians 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, 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 Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Goblin Ganglianus economy, worth 181 trillion Ooblecks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 116,945 Ooblecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation won three wars against Brancaland this weekend, brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, nations across the world are quick to praise Liam de Ganarg's good looks and intellectual prowess, and foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goblin Gang's national animal is the Lee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Genengshigninism.

Goblin Gang is ranked 207,315th in the world and 7,654th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -126.24 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
