The Kingdom of Griffany is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Emmett IV with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 873 million Griffanese 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 Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munich. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Griffanese economy, worth 65.3 trillion Marks 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 74,777 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, the monarchy has adopted absolute primogeniture, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Griffanese, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Griffany's national animal is the Griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Griffany is ranked 164,017th in the world and 11th in Knights Sentinel for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
