The Imperial Federation of Goyanes is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Anthony with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 9.668 billion Goyaneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gojannesstad. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goyanean economy, worth a remarkable 1,579 trillion Imperial Drams a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,420 Imperial Drams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Goyanes's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Goyanes is ranked 56,667th in the world and 2,930th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,468.57 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
