Groi Landstrabowal

Population1.338 billion

AnimalGroi Mountain Wolf

The Empire of Groi Landstrabowal is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.338 billion Groi Landstrabowalians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Groi Landstrabowalian economy, worth 95.9 trillion Landsmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 71,699 Landsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groi Landstrabowal's national animal is the Groi Mountain Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Groi Landstrabowal is ranked 152,405th in the world and 5,893rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 46.16 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
