The Republic of Grailquest is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lancelot with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 17.583 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.

It is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, people are moving into treehouses in record numbers, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. 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 1st in Singapore and 4th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 70 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
