The Vive le Cyclisme of Sierra Grand is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sovereign Sierrite Ardal Leopold May with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.332 billion Sierrese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Elisabeth. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sierrese economy, worth 163 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, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 123,035 Ʃ Freedom World Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Sierrese officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and the government snoops on private internet connections. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sierra Laureate.

Sierra Grand is ranked 55,332nd in the world and 5th in Amalgamated Federation for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,164.08 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
