The Wood Cabin Communities of Groenwald is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 2.256 billion Groenwaldians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berkwold. The average income tax rate is 38.5%.

The thriving Groenwaldian economy, worth 129 trillion Walders a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,621 Walders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The study of medicine is popular throughout Groenwald, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groenwald's national animal is the Forest Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Groenwald is ranked 13,434th in the world and 35th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,361.01 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
