The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.374 billion GrandKirchers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Mary's Port. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. 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 18th in The British Empire and 101,773rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.018 Stalins.
