The Escapement of Grandfather Clock is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by Grand Clocksmith with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.464 billion Grandfather Clocks 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clockworks Central. The average income tax rate is 17.4%.

The a Grandfather Clock economy, worth 123 trillion verges a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 50,109 verges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', and the Clockworks Central XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grandfather Clock's national animal is the pendulum and its national religion is punctuality.

Grandfather Clock is ranked 97,771st in the world and 385th in Europeia for Highest Economic Output, with 123 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
