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 renowned for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.762 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 enormous, socially-minded, 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 World-Capital Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Gothic economy, worth 102 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is 36,986 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Her Majesty Empress Victoria II wears an armoured gauntlet, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 Imperial Cult.

The Greater Gothic Empire is ranked 63,558th in the world and 60th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Highest Poor Incomes, with 31,323.43 Standard Monetary Units.
