The Federal Republic of Granskau is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Minister Ellingson with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.252 billion Granskauans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stav. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Granskauan economy, worth 269 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,774 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, if there's something strange in your neighborhood you call Brancaland, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Granskau's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Granskau is ranked 223,607th in the world and 7,869th in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.72 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
