The Great State of Granluras is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Carlos Lenor II with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.951 billion Granlurasians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santiagida. The average income tax rate is 64.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Granlurasian economy, worth 183 trillion Pedrosas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,055 Pedrosas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Granlurasians any less frightened, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Granluras's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Granluras is ranked 149,290th in the world and 31st in Cobalt Network for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -9.73 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
