The Lost Paradise of Grimmywelsh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grimtooth with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 17.459 billion Grimmywelshians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grimtown. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Grimmywelshian economy, worth a remarkable 2,251 trillion Faloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 128,932 Faloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, Grimmywelshian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime is totally unknown. Grimmywelsh's national animal is the Lemonfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grimmywelsh is ranked 199,518th in the world and 1,960th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14.8 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
