The Elven Republic of The GrottoBay is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Landor with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.555 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of kastea. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient GrottoBayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,837 trillion Septims a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 214,777 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. 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 5,750th in the world and 2nd in Cynosure for Most Inclusive, scoring 212.12 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
