Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Holy and Serene Empire of GrandKirche is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Charles Murton with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 11.954 billion GrandKircheans 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 minute 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient GrandKirchean economy, worth a remarkable 1,954 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 common. Average income is an impressive 163,490 Church Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, and women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. GrandKirche's national animal is the Magpie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Primitive Methodism.

GrandKirche is ranked 296th in the world and 1st in The British Empire for Most Devout, with 15,148.77 Prayers Per Hour.
