The Cup of Tea of Grand Miltonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 27.811 billion Grand Miltonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Happy's Funland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Grand Miltonian economy, worth a remarkable 9,252 trillion CCUS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 332,692 CCUS, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,759,144 per year while the poor average 8,092, a ratio of 341 to 1.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Leader's office, rioting and unrest sweep the nation, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Grand Miltonia, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grand Miltonia's national animal is the Sea Squirt, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grand Miltonia is ranked 2,897th in the world and 5th in Taijitu for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 628.4 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
