The Proto-Utopia of Grimlandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.317 billion Grimlanders 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grimlavik. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimlandic economy, worth 944 trillion Kramers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 218,784 Kramers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 708,226 per year while the poor average 51,037, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown. Grimlandia's national animal is the Grimlandic Land-Cod, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grimlandia is ranked 78,576th in the world and 630th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.23 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
