The Free Land of Grue is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 3.481 billion Grueans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grueville. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gruean economy, worth 383 trillion Grue Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,111 Grue Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has returned to more conventional warfare to slaughter its enemies, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grue's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Grue is ranked 14,547th in the world and 738th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 29.55 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
