“Once risen, fall is unlikely”

The Republic of Goldenis is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 237 million Goldenis 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Goldenisian economy, worth 18.5 trillion nocs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,851 nocs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, students abandon classrooms for online education, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Goldenis's national animal is the Golden Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
