The Los Angeles Sports Fan of New Goldman is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand President Harry Norton II with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.888 billion Goldmanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Hill. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Goldmanian economy, worth 591 trillion National Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,065 National Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Grand President Harry Norton II is a silly poophead, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, foreign football clubs wave the Goldmanian flag before every game, and bald-headed monks sit around the National Meditation Park looking smugly content. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Goldman's national animal is the Federal Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Goldman is ranked 261,656th in the world and 12,377th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -220 on the Hayek Index.
