The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.519 billion GrandKirchers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Mary's Port. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient GrandKirchean economy, worth 902 trillion Church Farthings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 138,431 Church Farthings, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, and eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. GrandKirche's national animal is the Magpie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Primitive Methodism.

GrandKirche is ranked 19th in The British Empire and 115,826th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -138 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
