The Cosmic Dream of The Grene Knyght is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by zombie James Connolly with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.474 billion Gawainians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Evermore. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Gawanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,480 trillion Bourgeois Skulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 228,699 Bourgeois Skulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Gawanian Values' advise against being proud of The Grene Knyght, "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves. Crime is totally unknown. The Grene Knyght's national animal is the Tentacled Abomonation, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Marxism.

The Grene Knyght is ranked 172,485th in the world and 299th in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -26.5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
