An ideal god (as in the Good guy) would never rule over our fates. His is the power to give life and create. Any further intervention and Free Will is lost. It is the only thing that allows Life to be meaningful.
Thus he would abandon his creation at least in action. A being of perfect balance, he will not intervene when even moved by pity . He would allow us the gift of Decision.
That is an ideal god.
(Sorry for the Blasphemy).
