The Grand Empire of New Goldman is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Harry Norton II with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.651 billion Goldmanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varyag. The average income tax rate is 82.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Goldmanian economy, worth 232 trillion Goldman Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,724 Goldman Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Goldman's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Norton.

New Goldman is ranked 226,186th in the world and 7,539th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.67 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
