The Free Land of Grianal is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Green Council with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.773 billion Grianalans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glada. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Grianalian economy, worth 85.4 trillion leephs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,809 leephs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, The Green Council's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, and workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grianal's national animal is the vole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grianal is ranked 216,283rd in the world and 8,117th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -148.3 on the Hayek Index.
