The Grand Duchy of Gooood Tiiimes is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 191 million Queens 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 enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 74.5%.

The strong Having A Good Time economy, worth 12.5 trillion mercury ingots a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 65,431 mercury ingots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, boom-and-bust cycles are being peddled as economically inevitable, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gooood Tiiimes's national animal is the kitty, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gooood Tiiimes is ranked 27,620th in the world and 1,289th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,475.44 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
