The People's Republic of Grunyev is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Premier Svetlana Tarakanov with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 2.268 billion Grunyevians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gorshkov. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Grunyevian economy, worth 20.3 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 8,955 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia, money grows on trees, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grunyev's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Korvinism.

Grunyev is ranked 125,904th in the world and 208th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 333.04 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
