The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.005 billion GrandKircheans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Mary's Port. The average income tax rate is 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient GrandKirchean economy, worth a remarkable 2,160 trillion Church Pounds a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,108 Church Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, tabloids coo over Sir Charles Murton's expected child, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. GrandKirche's national animal is the Magpie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Primitive Methodism.

GrandKirche is ranked 167,612th in the world and 11th in The British Empire for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -24.49 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
