The Militarized Dictatorship of Iarann Grudaidh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Georgia Grudaidh III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.319 billion Grudaidhians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duff Gardens. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Grudaidhian economy, worth 348 trillion Grudaidhian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 150,332 Grudaidhian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 457,840 per year while the poor average 38,310, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iarann Grudaidh's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iarann Grudaidh is ranked 33,786th in the world and 6th in Northern Ocean for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,590.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
