The Crab-free Polity of Gryphonian Alliance is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by UltraPraetor Reime Sewthenz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.112 billion Griffins hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plasmadius Prime. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gryphonic economy, worth a remarkable 1,960 trillion criuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,896 criuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, government spending has hit an all-time low, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gryphonian Alliance's national animal is the dawn phantom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nyarlathotep.

Gryphonian Alliance is ranked 187,231st in the world and 5,999th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.75 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
