The Rogue Nation of Gollem is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Smeagol with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.806 billion Gollemians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, International Aid, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cave. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Gollemian economy, worth 230 trillion Rings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 16,697 Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gollem has designated Cave as its capital city, Smeagol has just been declared ruler of Gollem in an international press conference, and My Precioussss has been named as Gollem's national religion. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gollem's national animal is the fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is My Precioussss.

Gollem is ranked 174,254th in the world and 2nd in The Hood for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 804.72 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
