|Leader||Wilhelm von Haubinsal|
|Animal||Feather Bellied Snake|
The Dictatorship of Grostal is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Wilhelm von Haubinsal with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.217 billion Grostalians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haubinsal. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Grostalian economy, worth 133 trillion Talis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 109,623 Talis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 714,794 per year while the poor average 6,653, a ratio of 107 to 1.
Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grostal's national animal is the Feather Bellied Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Monircy.
Grostal is ranked 150,348th in the world and 5,698th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 992.94 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
