The Groot of Groot is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Groot with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.167 billion Groot enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groot. The average income tax rate is 61.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Groot economy, worth a remarkable 1,196 trillion Groots a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 84,489 Groots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Groot's national animal is the Groot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Groot is ranked 31,296th in the world and 5th in One big Island for Highest Drug Use, scoring 100.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
