The Commonwealth of Grelmarae Schillandstan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Greta Shrewd with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.387 billion Grelmarae Schillandstanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vegas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Grelmarae Schillandstanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,448 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 226,720 francs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 703,289 per year while the poor average 56,272, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

The nation's leader appoints ministers directly, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grelmarae Schillandstan's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gingerbread Baking.

Grelmarae Schillandstan is ranked 245,884th in the world and 11th in The Empire of Mare Nostrum for Best Weather, with -95 meters of sunlight.
