The Most Omnipotent Government of The Greater Gothic Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her Majesty Empress Victoria II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.273 billion Goths are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of World Capital Gothica. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Gothic economy, worth 70.6 trillion skatts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,046 skatts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, and Her Majesty Empress Victoria II has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Gothic Empire's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Gothic Heterodoxy.

The Greater Gothic Empire is ranked 62,341st in the world and 1st in Eisenheim for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.18 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
