The Elven Republic of The GrottoBay is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Landor with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.766 billion Grottobayians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of kastea. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient GrottoBayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,404 trillion Septims a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 207,548 Septims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's a hole in the heart of every GrottoBayian city, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of rdh Thorons and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime is totally unknown. The GrottoBay's national animal is the rdh Thoron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lluvatar.

The GrottoBay is ranked 23,924th in the world and 24th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.71 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
