The Kingdom of Goodrum is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Paul IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.246 billion Goodrumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Curtis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Goodrumian economy, worth 226 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 100,640 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 350,670 per year while the poor average 21,029, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

G-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", and doctors ask for written consent before making eye contact with patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodrum's national animal is the Castle crusher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The King Paul IV Church.

Goodrum is ranked 100,610th in the world and 211th in New Western Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 62.12 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
