The Modly Moderator Moderating Moderately in Moderation of Godular is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sarathress of the Subtle Strike with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 43.022 billion Godulans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archona. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Godulan economy, worth an astonishing 28,397 trillion Shard Rinds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 660,079 Shard Rinds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's new "quiet competence" initiative has supporters and detractors alike reeling in confusion, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and the doctor has cold hands. Crime is totally unknown. Godular's national animal is the Cougar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Godular is ranked 194,132nd in the world and 2nd in The Godulus Empire for Most Conservative, scoring 41.75 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
