The International Grand Duchy of Sierra Grand is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sovereign Sierrite Ardal Leopold May with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.298 billion Sierrese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Elisabeth. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sierrese economy, worth 161 trillion Ʃ Freedom World Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 124,154 Ʃ Freedom World Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sierra Grand's national animal is the White Cockatoo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sierra Laureate.

Sierra Grand is ranked 194,513th in the world and 33rd in Amalgamated Federation for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 17,878.24 Standard Monetary Units.
