The Kingdom of Groot-Ievenburg is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Ief I with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.492 billion Groot-Ievenburgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iefstad. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Groot-Ievenburgian economy, worth 700 trillion IBFS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,546 IBFS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School football matches are usually five-a-side, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, saying "don't do anything that King Ief I wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groot-Ievenburg's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Groot-Ievenburg is ranked 136,713th in the world and 5,044th in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -8.68 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
