Groi Landstrabowal

The Empire of Groi Landstrabowal is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.217 billion Groi Landstrabowalians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Groi Landstrabowalian economy, worth 165 trillion Landsmarks 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 74,430 Landsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groi Landstrabowal's national animal is the Groi Mountain Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Groi Landstrabowal is ranked 3,427th in the world and 396th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 37 Valid Endorsements.
