The Armed Liberation State of Grungerock is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 31.643 billion Grungerockers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarcho-Independence. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Grungerockian economy, worth 546 trillion Qhords a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 17,276 Qhords, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime is totally unknown. Grungerock's national animal is the Eyeoftha Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grungerock is ranked 157,043rd in the world and 965th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,043.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
