The Armed Liberation State of Grungerock is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 31.401 billion Grungerockers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarcho-Independence. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Grungerockian economy, worth 546 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 17,395 Qhords, and distributed extremely evenly, with little 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 241,661st in the world and 1,391st in 10000 Islands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
