The Free Land of Grianal is a huge, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 574 million 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 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Grianalian economy, worth 17.2 trillion leephs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 29,976 leephs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor. 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 74,883rd in the world and 3,303rd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 60 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
