The Republic of Groenwald is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 383 million 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 Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.0%.
The Groenwaldian economy, worth 18.6 trillion Walders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 48,595 Walders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments. 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.
