Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.585 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient GrandKirchean economy, worth a remarkable 1,696 trillion Church Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 176,998 Church Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, St Mary's Port's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, vaccinations are mandatory, and the fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen. Crime is a major problem, 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 501st in the world and 1st in The Great Conservative Alliance for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
