The Holy Purple Cowland of Grebulonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Xorfan the Green with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.314 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, liberal, 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 8,094 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 242,971 sheep, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep. 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 225,823rd in the world and 200th in Yggdrasil for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.23 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
