The Kingdom of Groot-Ievenburg is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Ief I with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.406 billion Groot-Ievenburgians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iefstad. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Groot-Ievenburgian economy, worth 952 trillion IBFS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,569 IBFS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, war vets look after war animals, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groot-Ievenburg's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Groot-Ievenburg is ranked 108,188th in the world and 4,150th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,305.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
