Population2.145 billion

LeaderThe Green Council


The Free Land of Grianal is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Green Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 2.145 billion Grianalans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glada. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Grianalian economy, worth 57.7 trillion leephs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 26,918 leephs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, nations that kill a Grianalan can expect a strongly worded letter, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grianal's national animal is the vole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grianal is ranked 122,258th in the world and 5,462nd in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 15.69 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
