The Proto-Utopia of Grimlandia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.945 billion Grimlanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government prioritizes 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 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimlandic economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 trillion Kramers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 230,454 Kramers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 764,500 per year while the poor average 51,849, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, for just a few extra Kramers Grimlanders can get new driving records with their new cars, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. 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 147,788th in the world and 1,007th in 10000 Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.04 Crimes Per Hour.
