The Cup of Tea of Grand Miltonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 30.605 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 an astonishing 10,254 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 335,044 CCUS, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,124,983 per year while the poor average 3,181, a ratio of 982 to 1.

Citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in, and a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Leader. 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 241,207th in the world and 35th in Taijitu for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -74.77 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
