The Republic of Grailquest is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lancelot with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 17.474 billion Grailquestians 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.

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.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, all footpaths have tollbooths, polar bears have more rights than the average citizen, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. 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 112,474th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -1,087.6 Insults Per Minute (net).
