The Jingoistic States of Greattorn is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Dictator Howard Walters with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.386 billion Greattornians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greacon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.1%.

The very strong Greattornian economy, worth 179 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,049 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Much of Greattorn's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, prisoners fit in their parole hearings around their spa treatments, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greattorn's national animal is the bison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Greattorn is ranked 99,099th in the world and 94th in Oneid for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 123,658 Standard Monetary Units.
