The Free Incorporated Markets of Capitalist Golborne is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Chair with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.223 billion Golborners are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Golborne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Capitalist Golbornean economy, worth 265 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 217,115 Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Capitalist Golborne as a reminder of their "special relationship". Crime is almost non-existent. Capitalist Golborne's national animal is the Donkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Capitalist Golborne is ranked 211,939th in the world and 7,370th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 257.93 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
