The Inherent lack of Happiness of Sierra Grand is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sovereign Sierrite Ardal Leopold May with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.565 billion Sierrese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Elisabeth. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sierrese economy, worth 201 trillion Ʃ Freedom World Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 129,000 Ʃ Freedom World Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of Ʃ Freedom World Credits are being blown on orbital weapons development, elected officials who disagree with Sovereign Sierrite Ardal Leopold May have a lot of accidents, anti-tourism militias patrol the borders, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sierra Grand's national animal is the White Cockatoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sierra Laureate.

Sierra Grand is ranked 41,381st in the world and 5th in Amalgamated Federation for Most Beautiful Environments, with 709.19 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
