Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.748 billion GrandKircheans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Mary's Port. The average income tax rate is 5.4%.

The frighteningly efficient GrandKirchean economy, worth a remarkable 1,565 trillion Church Pounds a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 178,968 Church Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. Crime is almost non-existent. 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 16th in The British Empire and 141,435th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -139 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
