The Republic of Grailquest is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lancelot with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 17.796 billion Grailquestians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grailquest City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grailquest's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Singapore dollar.

Grailquest is ranked 3rd in Singapore and 99,029th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 28 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
