The Armed Liberation State of Grungerock is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 25.286 billion Grungerockers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarcho-Independence. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Grungerockian economy, worth 130 trillion Qhords a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 5,149 Qhords, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime is totally unknown. Grungerock's national animal is the Eyeoftha Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grungerock is ranked 105,286th in the world and 800th in 10000 Islands for Most Pacifist, with 51.69 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
