The Inestimably Holy Empire of Gooblaria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Chosen One with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, flagrant waste-dumping, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.893 billion Gooblarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goobla. The average income tax rate is 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gooblarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,864 trillion Goobles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 350,132 Goobles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The official Gooblarian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. Crime is totally unknown. Gooblaria's national animal is the Hyena, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gooblaria is ranked 12,299th in the world and 33rd in Europeia for Most Armed, with 7.6 Weapons Per Person.
