The Most Serene Republic of Grimzan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Consul Supremus with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.528 billion Grimzanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seat of the Republic. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimzanian economy, worth 686 trillion Imperial coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 194,590 Imperial coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 647,665 per year while the poor average 43,564, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love Consul Supremus, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", and new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grimzan's national animal is the Naked Frenchman, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Grimzan is ranked 130,045th in the world and 6,342nd in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 53.51 Workforce Participation Rate.
