The Catfishe's Republic of Goshnia and Goshnigovina is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Stepan Somov with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 864 million Goshnians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reisa. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Goshnia and Goshnigovinan economy, worth 71.9 trillion Goshniars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is 83,261 Goshniars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Goshnia and Goshnigovinan satellites can detect it, the Goshnia and Goshnigovina Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', a friend in need is a friend with nuclear greed, and the nation's diplomats are all talk and no action. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goshnia and Goshnigovina's national animal is the Catfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Goshnia and Goshnigovina is ranked 5,401st in the world and 207th in The Communist Bloc for Most Influential, scoring 14,523 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
