The Rolling Carts of Gog Magog is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fingal with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.988 billion Gog Magogians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Staffa. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gog Magogian economy, worth a remarkable 2,382 trillion Boulders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,355 Boulders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gog Magog's national animal is the Giant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Druidism.

Gog Magog is ranked 6,563rd in the world and 2nd in Atlantic for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 34,198.42 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
