The Isle of Grossmania

Population11.183 billion



The Commonwealth of The Isle of Grossmania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maestro with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working population of 11.183 billion Grossmen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelsingtown. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isle of Grossmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,208 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,035 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and the blind lead the blind in social welfare. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Isle of Grossmania's national animal is the Tigger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Isle of Grossmania is ranked 73,687th in the world and 2,989th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
