The Half-Decent Polity of Gryphonian Alliance is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by UltraPraetor Reime Sewthenz with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.771 billion Griffins 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 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Gryphonic economy, worth a remarkable 2,433 trillion criuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,563 criuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, the nation has chosen not to live in interesting times, and foragers descend on national cemeteries for 'all-you-can-dig-up' extravaganzas. 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, and its national religion is Nyarlathotep.

Gryphonian Alliance is ranked 2,508th in the world and 47th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 18,350.63 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
