The Linked Nests of Grubnation is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Balagangster with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.378 billion Grubnationians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 23.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Grub economy, worth 228 trillion Deets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,108 Deets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.
Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Grub pirates. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Grubnation's national animal is the Grub, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
Grubnation is ranked 8,526th in the world and 104th in 10000 Islands for Most Secular, with 97.1 Atheism Rate.
