The Federation of Greatnessity City is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ice Thunder with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.158 billion Greatnessity Cityians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greatness Plains. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greatnessity Cityian economy, worth 541 trillion Greyshians a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,969 Greyshians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, the government pours millions of Greyshians into rehabilitation programs annually, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greatnessity City's national animal is the Great Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lightning Fire.

Greatnessity City is ranked 169,572nd in the world and 521st in Europeia for Rudest Citizens, with 36.6 Insults Per Minute.
