The Free Land of Grue is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.064 billion Grueans 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 Grueville. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gruean economy, worth 124 trillion Grue Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,602 Grue Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. 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 40,586th in the world and 1,961st in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
