The Grand Duchy of Arthe Grient is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The democratic population of 529 million Grientians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Arthe Grientian economy, worth 25.1 trillion zolches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,431 zolches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Politicians are fired for opening subjective statements with "I believe", fruit vendors are encouraging a life of crime in their advertising, visions of giant pink lions are a common side effect after Grientians eat their meals, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Arthe Grient. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arthe Grient's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
