The Republic of Liam Grant is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 121 million Liam Grantians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.6%.

The strong Liam Grantian economy, worth 6.59 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 54,453 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liam Grant's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Liam Grant is ranked 134,473rd in the world and 1,104th in Europeia for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 1,792.29 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
