The Retired Soldier of Golden Hind is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Big Boss with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.36 billion Golden Hindians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Exceeding Treasure. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Golden Hindian economy, worth a remarkable 1,352 trillion solid gold hinds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,064 solid gold hinds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes. Crime is totally unknown. Golden Hind's national animal is the golden hind, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Golden Hind is ranked 205,610th in the world and 30th in Iberian Empire for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 320.59 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
