“I won't poison your dinner dear, honestly...”

The Happy Hangover Hour of Griffin Somerset is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 11.844 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Defence, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Voting is compulsory and the government is seen to favor Catholics. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Griffin Somerset's national animal is the drunkard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the cider bottle.
