The Empire of Griffin tribe is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 45 million Griffin folks 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Griffin tribean economy, worth 2.58 trillion gold coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 57,411 gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, a government program is underway to revitalize Griffin tribe's beaches, the single fish caught by Griffin tribean fishers last year is cited as evidence of Griffin tribe's thriving fisheries, and politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Griffin tribe's national animal is the griffins, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Griffin tribe is ranked 48,305th in the world and 2,659th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 110 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
