The Featured Region Travels of Gold Camel is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Rose with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 4.047 billion Gold Camelians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bass Canyon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Gold Camelian economy, worth 432 trillion Golds 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 106,864 Golds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 495,327 per year while the poor average 13,882, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

Helicopter parenting is on the rise, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and commemoration of the Great Tsardom of Muscovy War costs almost as much as the war itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gold Camel's national animal is the Dromedary camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bisco.

Gold Camel is ranked 7,812th in the world and 1st in Tsardom of Muscovy for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,849.63 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
