The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.256 billion GrandKirchers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Sir Charles Murton's bedroom. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. 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 19th in The British Empire and 119,652nd in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -130 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
