The Kingdom of Goodrum is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Paul IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.421 billion Goodrumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Curtis. The average income tax rate is 46.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Goodrumian economy, worth 359 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 105,043 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, and immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goodrum's national animal is the Castle crusher, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The King Paul IV Church.

Goodrum is ranked 47,574th in the world and 2nd in Hyperico for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,076.96 Tourists Per Hour.
