The Confederacy of Griemvarant is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sharth Gargon with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.199 billion Griemvarantans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rafhurst. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Griemvarantan economy, worth 140 trillion savals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,542 savals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Penguin Dung" has been declared a national treasure, Sharth Gargon's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Griemvarant's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Hrosha.

Griemvarant is ranked 23,045th in the world and 964th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 1,134.89 Prayers Per Hour.
