The Half-Decent Polity of Gryphonian Alliance is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by UltraPraetor Reime Sewthenz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.501 billion Griffins hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plasmadius Prime. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gryphonic economy, worth a remarkable 2,200 trillion criuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,348 criuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, business is banging at no-tell motels, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to UltraPraetor Reime Sewthenz's wardrobe, and the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gryphonian Alliance's national animal is the dawn phantom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nyarlathotep.

Gryphonian Alliance is ranked 135,876th in the world and 1,020th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 197 billion Standard Monetary Units.
