LeaderGrand Consortian Magnus Montrenee


The Free Land of The Grand Economic Consortium is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Grand Consortian Magnus Montrenee with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 987 million Consortians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grandeville. The average income tax rate is 22.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Consortian economy, worth 100 trillion Krofers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 102,315 Krofers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Grand Economic Consortium's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Grand Economic Consortium is ranked 255,339th in the world and 4th in Grand Economic Cooperation Sphere for Most Devout, with 7.24 prayers per hour.
