The Commonwealth of Granbury is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 473 million Granburyians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkswell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Granburyian economy, worth 55.6 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 117,501 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 350,409 per year while the poor average 30,853, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, Granbury successfully hosted the The Free Nations Region Olympics, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Granbury's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Granbury is ranked 11,575th in the world and 22nd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 10,542.71 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
