The Technocratic Dictatorship of Grindoligarch is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kruzgev Umqashi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.723 billion Grindoligarchians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sluminia. The average income tax rate is 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Grindoligarchian economy, worth 634 trillion Grindoligarch Marks 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 an amazing 233,178 Grindoligarch Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

People faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, Kruzgev Umqashi is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grindoligarch's national animal is the Working class, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Holy Listener.

Grindoligarch is ranked 8,598th in the world and 262nd in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 109,435.46 Standard Monetary Units.
