The Free Land of Great Ranges is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 213 million Rangers 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Great Rangesian economy, worth 8.75 trillion Inklings a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,063 Inklings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and light entertainment isn't dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Ranges's national animal is the Freckled Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Ranges is ranked 165,388th in the world and 1,704th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
