The Free Land of Grue is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.001 billion Grueans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grueville. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gruean economy, worth 337 trillion Grue Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,469 Grue Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the nation has returned to more conventional warfare to slaughter its enemies, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grue's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Grue is ranked 9,922nd in the world and 530th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,888.61 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
