OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Grailquest is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lancelot with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate population of 16.655 billion 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.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Grailquest. 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 23rd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 2,555 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
