The Dictatorship of Gre Thesenttemer is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.032 billion Gre Thesenttemerians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 40.6%.

The Gre Thesenttemerian economy, worth 43.0 trillion dollars 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, fairly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. 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 41,703 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gre Thesenttemer's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gre Thesenttemer is ranked 194,037th in the world and 370th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
