So far there is very little reliable information about the Good Place. Most of what we know comes from Michael, while he was actively deceiving the inhabitants into thinking they lived in the Good Place. Some of those details have been confirmed, but many have not.
The Good Place has likely existed since the beginning of time (at the very least since humans existed) and is, so we are told, a utopian paradise for those that were truly noble and good in life.
Gaining access into The Good Place isn't easy. According to Michael, from the moment of birth every action and decision that a human makes either had a positive or negative effect, thus affecting that human's overall point score total. The bigger the action the bigger the point difference but there is a catch. Simply doing good deeds is not enough to raise a humans point total, their motivations must be pure otherwise it is seen as a selfish act. Tahani is a good example of this. Despite the fact that in her lifetime she raised 6 billion euros for non-profit organizations around the world, she didn't care about the people she was helping and only did it for fame, praise and moral superiority. Since her motivations were corrupt, Tahani was sent to The Bad Place.
Only humans with an exceptionally high score value are allowed into The Good Place. The lowest score seen to be allowed into The Good Place was roughly +900,000.
Only humans and Janets reside in Good Place neighbourhoods. It is likely that the neighbourhood's architect and other angels may come and go as they please but according to Michael, after the the first day of orientation, the angels leave and humans are left alone with their Janet.
The inhabitants of The Good Place are determined by everything they did in their life. Everything a person does during their life gives them points, positive points or negative points. After a person's death their points are totalled. If a person has a high number of points they will go to the Good Place but if they have a low number will go to The Bad Place.
Everyday life Edit
Each day in The Good Place is a blissful existence where a human may have anything they desire simple by calling on their neighborhood's Janet. Humans in The Good Place also never experience any kind of pain, do not age and cannot perish.
