The Proto-Utopia of Grimlandia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.272 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grimlavik. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,179 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 223,792 Kramers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 680,532 per year while the poor average 57,154, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, organ donation is compulsory, and polite commuters on the Grimlavik Metro always let hurried workers off the train first. 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 2,674th in the world and 32nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 8,351.57 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
