New Grestin

Population9.121 billion

LeaderAdministrator Justine Caldwell


The Esoteric Order of New Grestin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Administrator Justine Caldwell with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.121 billion Grestinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 Haslau. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Grestinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 trillion Yars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,554 Yars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carefully-staged grief is displayed by Administrator Justine Caldwell after national disasters, the only things Grestinians vote on are cutest Badger competitions, stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of New Grestin, and the state aims to prevent terrorism by committing acts of terror against suspected aggressors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Grestin's national animal is the Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Grestin is ranked 48,269th in the world and 1,845th in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,265.23 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
