The An'Kazar Control Framework of Godular is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sarathress of the Subtle Strike with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 32.949 billion Godulans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archona. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Godulan economy, worth an astonishing 17,905 trillion Shard Rinds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 543,430 Shard Rinds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, only adults may purchase violent video games, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. Crime is totally unknown. Godular's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is An'Kaz Superiority.

Godular is ranked 136,933rd in the world and 4th in The Godulus Empire for Most Pro-Market, scoring -59.11 on the Rand Index.
