The Formerly Retired Bureaucrat of Grolsch is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.765 billion Grolschians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uzvertim. The average income tax rate is 88%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

People faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Grolsch's radio stations, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grolsch's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Beeram.

Grolsch is ranked 73rd in Social Liberal Union and 101,336th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -13 on the Hayek Index.
