The Apolytonian Surfdom of Grant Park - Harrow is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jimmie with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 26.666 billion Grant Park - Harrowi'ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rockwood. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Grant Park - Harrowi'ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,357 trillion zukens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 88,407 zukens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

End-of-year production reports state that the revolution is really going with a bang, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, laughter while watching foreign diplomats disrobe tends to make diplomatic talks counterproductive, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grant Park - Harrow's national animal is the pirate, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is High Church.

Grant Park - Harrow is ranked 1,761st in the world and 1st in Manitoba for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 15,486.86 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
