The Free Love Paradise of Grenartia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Someone with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.834 billion Grenartians 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 relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vander. The average income tax rate is 7.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Grenartian economy, worth a remarkable 2,576 trillion grains of sand a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 129,878 grains of sand, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, the endangered saltwater humpback Bear is only seen in captivity programs, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grenartia's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is whatever you want to believe.
