The Colony of Grond is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 11.426 billion Grondians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Grondian economy, worth 28.5 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,496 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grond's national animal is the seal.

Grond is ranked 168,986th in the world and 7,435th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with zero Cheeks Per Square Mile.
