The Empire of Grandkiin is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Solus Nicholas IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.183 billion Grandkiinians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odysseus. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grandkiinian economy, worth 847 trillion Grandmarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,272 Grandmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, purported secret military bases are dismissed by Emperor Solus Nicholas IV to be highly-advanced toilet factories, and the people's love for Emperor Solus Nicholas IV is little more than self-preservation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grandkiin's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Grandkiin is ranked 12,191st in the world and 55th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 88.97 on the Human Development Index.
