The Lost Paradise of Grimmywelsh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Grimtooth with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 18.07 billion Grimmywelshians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grimtown. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grimmywelshian economy, worth a remarkable 2,347 trillion Faloons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,891 Faloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's best not to ask what goes into Grimtown Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBG Governor goes house hunting. Crime is totally unknown. Grimmywelsh's national animal is the Lemonfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grimmywelsh is ranked 1,628th in the world and 36th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 27.8 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
