The Catfishe's Republic of Goshnia and Goshnigovina is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Stepan Somov with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 906 million Goshnians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reisa. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Goshnia and Goshnigovinan economy, worth 76.5 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 84,386 Goshniars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy. 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 270,056th in the world and 1,735th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.78 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
