The White Winter Queendom of Graintfjall is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Júlíana with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.295 billion Grćntfjallers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Háttmark. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Grćntfjaller economy, worth 757 trillion krónas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 176,328 krónas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 759,423 per year while the poor average 26,122, a ratio of 29.1 to 1.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Graintfjall's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Graintfjall is ranked 75,816th in the world and 36th in Rushmore for Highest Drug Use, scoring 82.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
