OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Grishnum is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.346 billion Grishnumians 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 large government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with areas such as Social Equality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 30%. A large private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports industries.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Grishnum's national animal is the Dinosaur, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the Dollar.

Grishnum is ranked 20th in The Black Hawks and 43,915th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -5 on the Hayek Index.
