Goldman-Sachs

The Kingdom of Goldman-Sachs is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory vegetarianism, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.105 billion Goldman-Sachsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Goldman-Sachsian economy, worth 166 trillion coins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,192 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political radicals send their coins to degree mills for a chance to serve in Parliament, disgruntled jocks are forced to play tetris for entertainment, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, and citizens may now wear shoes while watching television as long as the television is outside and the shoes are rental. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goldman-Sachs's national animal is the consumer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Goldman-Sachs is ranked 192,464th in the world and 4th in Algretia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5.1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
