The Isle of Grossmania

Population13.838 billion



The Commonwealth of The Isle of Grossmania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maestro with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 13.838 billion Grossmen 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelsingtown. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isle of Grossmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,520 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,862 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corrupt paupers spend taxpayer Credits on liquor and tobacco, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Isle of Grossmania's national animal is the Tigger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Isle of Grossmania is ranked 23,678th in the world and 1,352nd in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 226.24 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
