The Actian State of TheGoldCoast is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jim Axel Rod with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, digital currency, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.424 billion Actians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baia Sole. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The powerhouse Actian economy, worth 131 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 91,998 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 562,460 per year while the poor average 6,625, a ratio of 84.9 to 1.

The military struggles with recruitment, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime is moderate. TheGoldCoast's national animal is the Gold Gull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Canntunism.

TheGoldCoast is ranked 150,310th in the world and 218th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Highest Drug Use, scoring 19.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
