The Grand Empire of New Goldman is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Harry Norton II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.232 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varyag. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goldmanian economy, worth 158 trillion Goldman Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,367 Goldman Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, people say chess victor Emperor Harry Norton II can kill you with mind-bullets, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Goldman's national animal is the Bison and its national religion is The Cult of Norton.

New Goldman is ranked 27,848th in the world and 905th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,675.55 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
