The Holy Purple Cowland of Grebulonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Xorfan the Green with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.522 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 7,127 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 common. Average income is an amazing 241,419 sheep, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. 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 7,225th in the world and 43rd in Yggdrasil for Most Influential, scoring 5,371 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
