The Imperial Federation of Goyanes is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Anthony with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.75 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 prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gojannesstad. The average income tax rate is 6.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goyanean economy, worth a remarkable 1,254 trillion Imperial Drams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,929 Imperial Drams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 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 well under control. Goyanes's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Goyanes is ranked 7,100th in the world and 327th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 123.88 on the Hayek Index.
