The National Socialist Union of North Grestin is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Ioannis Petropoulos with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 832 million Grestinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peirassus. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Grestinian economy, worth 113 trillion Grests a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,881 Grests, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, North Grestin's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Grestin's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

North Grestin is ranked 11,298th in the world and 1st in The Midnight Order HQ for Highest Poor Incomes, with 89,911.54 Standard Monetary Units.
