The Community of Private Godfrey is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Charles Godfrey MM with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 11.984 billion Private Godfreyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Clinic. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Private Godfreyian economy, worth 165 trillion Upside Down Cakes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 13,841 Upside Down Cakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, Godfreyism has been named as Private Godfrey's national religion, Charles Godfrey MM has just been declared ruler of Private Godfrey in an international press conference, and Private Godfrey has designated The Clinic as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Private Godfrey's national animal is the First Aid Box, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Godfreyism.

Private Godfrey is ranked 17,669th in the world and 1st in Walmington on Sea for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
