The Kingdom of Greenlund is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its lack of airports, enslaved workforce, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.47 billion Greenlundians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qeqertarsuaq. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.0%.

The very strong Greenlundian economy, worth 190 trillion Hides a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 77,012 Hides, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 217,734 per year while the poor average 21,791, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The libraries of Greenlund are staffed by lone, lonely librarians, political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greenlund's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greenlund is ranked 836th in the world and 580th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 167 Valid Endorsements.
