The Republic of Grieslhiem is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grieselian with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.816 billion Grieslhiemians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griesendel. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grieslhiemian economy, worth 177 trillion Griesls a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,907 Griesls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Grieselian, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grieslhiem's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Common Sence.

Grieslhiem is ranked 29,904th in the world and 1,526th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,361.1 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
