The Republic of Grailquest is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lancelot with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 17.785 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.

Grailquest's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, and an enormous health awareness programme is underway. 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 4th in Singapore and 112,935th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -70 on the Hayek Index.
