The Lost Paradise of Grimmywelsh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grimtooth with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.985 billion Grimmywelshians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grim City. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimmywelshian economy, worth a remarkable 3,625 trillion Faloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 164,894 Faloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, much of Grimmywelsh's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grimmywelsh's national animal is the Lemonfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grimmywelsh is ranked 9,583rd in the world and 166th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,085.89 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
