The Republic of Godammitt is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The cynical, devout population of 195 million Godammittians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Godammittian economy, worth 11.0 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 56,353 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, and corruption is a game of two halves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Godammitt's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Godammitt is ranked 115,872nd in the world and 4,860th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.12 on the Rand Index.
