The Federal Republic of of Grantsylvania is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President John Olmstead with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.554 billion Grantsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bannockburn. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Grantsylvanian economy, worth 293 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 82,559 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, it's always rabbit season, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grantsylvania's national animal is the Common Loon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Grantsylvania is ranked 42,525th in the world and 234th in Europeia for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
