The Featured Region Travels of Gold Camel is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Rose with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.52 billion Gold Camelians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bass Canyon. The average income tax rate is 36.5%.

The all-consuming Gold Camelian economy, worth 224 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 89,125 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, smoking is banned in public areas, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gold Camel's national animal is the Dromedary camel and its national religion is Bisco.

Gold Camel is ranked 55,375th in the world and 3rd in The ISF Coalition for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,713.1 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
