The Technocratic Dictatorship of Grindoligarch is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kruzgev Umqashi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.284 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 Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sluminia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Grindoligarchian economy, worth 521 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 228,316 Grindoligarch Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 902,030 per year while the poor average 39,125, a ratio of 23.1 to 1.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, and officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high. 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 4,390th in the world and 90th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 228,316.55 Standard Monetary Units.
