The Victorious Dictator of Nationalist Gold Union is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leonard Roberts with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.996 billion NGUmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caspia. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient NGU economy, worth a remarkable 5,000 trillion telegram stamps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 277,846 telegram stamps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nationalist Gold Union's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Nationalist Gold Union is ranked 80,397th in the world and 15th in Testregionia for Most Authoritarian, with 1,011.59 milliStalins.
