OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Grailquest is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lancelot with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 18.009 billion Grailquestians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 government funds large training centres to turn polar bears into functioning members of society, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 5th in Singapore and 118,896th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -72 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
