The People's Republic of Sao Grinita is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Primer Comandante Alvarado with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.148 billion Sao Grinitans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cuvanas. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sao Grinitan economy, worth 410 trillion Penches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 79,733 Penches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primer Comandante Alvarado has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, the people's love for Primer Comandante Alvarado is little more than self-preservation, posters remind people that 'Hoarding Mushrooms Is Theft', and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sao Grinita's national animal is the Anaconda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sao Grinita is ranked 3,312th in the world and 71st in The Communist Bloc for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.03 Years.
