The Republic of Golden Provence is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its closed borders and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 262 million Golden Provenceans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 17.4%.

The very strong Golden Provencean economy, worth 17.6 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 67,017 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, both criminals and civilians are DOA, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Golden Provence's national animal is the coala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Golden Provence is ranked 218,676th in the world and 24th in RIUVV for Most Extreme, scoring 5.5 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
