The Leader of the VSO of Granzery is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by István Árpád with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 5.168 billion Granzerians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veraglia. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Granzeryian economy, worth 131 trillion Rucats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,510 Rucats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, smoking is banned in public areas, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Granzery's national animal is the Turulmadar.

Granzery is ranked 220,940th in the world and 7,330th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 47.28 on the Human Development Index.
