The Lost Paradise of Grimmywelsh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grimtooth with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.433 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 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 Grim City. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grimmywelshian economy, worth a remarkable 2,702 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 139,090 Faloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown. Grimmywelsh's national animal is the Lemonfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grimmywelsh is ranked 43,692nd in the world and 324th in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 19.82 Flags saluted per person per day.
