The Lost Paradise of Grimmywelsh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Grimtooth with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 25.717 billion Grimmywelshians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grim City. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimmywelshian economy, worth a remarkable 4,512 trillion Faloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,474 Faloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sharing vacation pictures requires written consent from the entire beach resort, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Grimtooth's bedroom, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grimmywelsh's national animal is the Lemonfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grimmywelsh is ranked 931st in the world and 16th in 10000 Islands for Safest, scoring 168.08 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
