The Empire of Greallemonsland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jimmy Johnson with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.867 billion Greallemonslandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meme city. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greallemonslandian economy, worth 479 trillion Marcs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,287 Marcs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greallemonsland's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Memeianity.

Greallemonsland is ranked 129,712th in the world and 659th in The Communist Bloc for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 34.87 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
