The Empire of Grande Armee is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Napoleon VIII with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.112 billion Grande Armeeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boulogne. The average income tax rate is 50.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grande Armeean economy, worth 151 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,191 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, frustrated teenage boys are told that if they like it then they should have put a ring on it, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grande Armee's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Grande Armee is ranked 60,572nd in the world and 47th in Catholic for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 50 Effective Tax Rate.
