The Free Land of Grouu is a huge, safe nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 954 million Groufs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Grouky economy, worth 103 trillion Grouzoufs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,156 Grouzoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime is totally unknown. Grouu's national animal is the Corbeau, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
