The Armed Liberation State of Grungerock is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 27.046 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 Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarcho-Independence. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Grungerockian economy, worth 141 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 5,230 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 9,391st in the world and 201st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.46 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
