The Rolling Carts of Gog Magog is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fingal with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.223 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Staffa. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gog Magogian economy, worth a remarkable 3,707 trillion Boulders a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 228,553 Boulders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

All screens are equal but some are more equal than others, if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, property owners are terrified of pigeons nesting in their buildings, and everyone hates people who encourage hate. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Druidism.

Gog Magog is ranked 226,497th in the world and 16th in Atlantic for Most Politically Free, scoring 6.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
