The Lost Paradise of Grimmywelsh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grimtooth with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.863 billion Grimmywelshians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grimtown. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Grimmywelshian economy, worth a remarkable 1,634 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 and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,032 Faloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, where there's smoke there's the Grimmywelshian Forestry Department, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls. Crime is totally unknown. Grimmywelsh's national animal is the Lemonfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grimmywelsh is ranked 155,537th in the world and 1,091st in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -82.56 on the Rand Index.
