The Holy Theocracy of Grand Mythral is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Erica Wilhelmina von Claire with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.101 billion Grand Mythralians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centuria. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Grand Mythralian economy, worth 363 trillion Mythrials a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 172,983 Mythrials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", swings are now more popular than see-saws in children's playgrounds, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, and the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Mythral's national animal is the Blue Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sirius Church of Mythral.

Grand Mythral is ranked 12,845th in the world and 45th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Cultured, scoring 99 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
