The United States of Grub is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 35.585 billion Grubians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grub City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Grubian economy, worth a remarkable 5,797 trillion stubbs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 162,918 stubbs, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Healthcare funding has been cut, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and Grub has designated Grub City as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Grub's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Grub is ranked 23,505th in the world and 112th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 108 on the Hayek Index.
