The United Realms of Greenaldia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Protector Valorum with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 19.663 billion Greenaldians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aldus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Greenaldian economy, worth a remarkable 6,527 trillion marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 331,986 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,170,996 per year while the poor average 68,085, a ratio of 17.2 to 1.

Military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and sweet-toothed Greenaldians have been left penniless by the VAT on candy. Crime is totally unknown. Greenaldia's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greenaldia is ranked 32,135th in the world and 885th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
