The Republic of Grossbaden is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 211 million Grossbadenians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The powerhouse Grossbadenian economy, worth 20.4 trillion Badische Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 96,653 Badische Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 381,105 per year while the poor average 16,616, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, Leader has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, and burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grossbaden's national animal is the Greif, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Grossbaden is ranked 165,856th in the world and 39th in Deutschland for Most Cultured, scoring 48 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
