Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.955 billion GrandKircheans 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.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Mary's Port. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient GrandKirchean economy, worth a remarkable 1,815 trillion Church Pounds a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 182,406 Church Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, Primitive Methodism now admits men and women into its clergy, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 153,127th in the world and 6th in The British Empire for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -26.42 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
