The Holy Purple Cowland of Grebulonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Xorfan the Green with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.086 billion Grebuloners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onfreia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Grebulonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,808 trillion sheep a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 244,092 sheep, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, counselors diagnose their clients with motherboard complexes, the official Grebulonian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grebulonia's national animal is the holstein cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grebulonia is ranked 277,670th in the world and 206th in Yggdrasil for Fattest Citizens, with 0.96 Obesity Rate.
