The Culture of Gooutofhere is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Empress of Gooutofhere with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.308 billion Gooutofhereans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitol. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Gooutofherean economy, worth a remarkable 9,718 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 730,257 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gooutofhere's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gooutofhere's national animal is the Eagle Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Prythia.

Gooutofhere is ranked 161st in the world and 1st in New World Union for Most Secular, with 99.29 Atheism Rate.
