|Leader||First Minister Ellingson|
The Federal Republic of Granskau is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Minister Ellingson with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.3 billion Granskauans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stav. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Granskauan economy, worth 128 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,871 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
