The Dictatorship of The Dictator Goose is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 279 million Geese 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goose Lake. The average income tax rate is 64.8%.

The very strong Goose economy, worth 17.6 trillion Seeds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,131 Seeds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, billions of Seeds are being poured into a space program, hotels often double as quarantine zones, and The Dictator Goose has designated Goose Lake as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dictator Goose's national animal is the Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Dictator Goose is ranked 200,859th in the world and 6,863rd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.28 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
