The Queendom of Golden gateway is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 498 million Golden gatewayians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fox's Den. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Golden gatewayian economy, worth 50.6 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 101,612 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Golden gateway's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Golden gateway is ranked 217,321st in the world and 142nd in Refugia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -7.87 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
