The Most Serene Republic of Groulart is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by All-Mother with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 866 million Groulartians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy City of Port Peche. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Groulartian economy, worth 93.1 trillion Clavilles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,527 Clavilles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, Groulart's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groulart's national animal is the Hippo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Groulart is ranked 15,426th in the world and 1st in The League of Sublime Nations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,110.47 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
