The Queen's State of GRB is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its burgeoning deer population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.835 billion GRBians 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, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Environment, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 17.4%.

The very strong GRBian economy, worth 749 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Average income is 34,310 betales, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

GRB has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the Governor has just been declared ruler of GRB in an international press conference, none has been named as GRB's national religion, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. GRB's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

GRB is ranked 50,017th in the world and 6th in Qatar for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
