The Free Land of Grubville is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 749 million Grubvilleans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groobtown. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Grubvillean economy, worth 80.6 trillion gribs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,552 gribs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, Grubvillean tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grubville's national animal is the Stag Beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
