The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.113 billion GrandKirchers 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 devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Mary's Port. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology industries.

Magpie is one of the most popular forenames in GrandKirche, the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. GrandKirche's national animal is the Magpie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Primitive Methodism, and its currency is the Church Farthing.

GrandKirche is ranked 20th in The British Empire and 119,984th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
