The Grand Duchy of Grensfind is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 629 million Grensfindians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grenwen. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Grensfindian economy, worth 53.8 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 85,529 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Brains have been removed from lists of best brain foods, the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and Leader's perky ego is the talk of the town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grensfind's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
