The Uncommon Polity of Gryphonian Alliance is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by UltraPraetor Reime Sewthenz with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.521 billion Griffins 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plasmadius Prime. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Gryphonic economy, worth a remarkable 1,610 trillion criuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 188,987 criuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gryphonian Alliance's national animal is the dawn phantom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gryphonian Alliance is ranked 45,024th in the world and 1,870th in the West Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 50.67 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
