The People's Republic of Grimandia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 281 million Grimanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Grimandian economy, worth 9.83 trillion Grimandermarenkis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 34,971 Grimandermarenkis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grimandia's national animal is the Workaholic Owl, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Grimandia is ranked 143,695th in the world and 7,243rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.75 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
