The Supreme Dictatorship of Grov Portion is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 832 million Portions are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Portion economy, worth 93.1 trillion Rials a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 111,854 Rials, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 430,991 per year while the poor average 19,964, a ratio of 21.6 to 1.

It's rare to find an unchewed pencil, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Portion nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, and officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Grov Portion's national animal is the Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Grov Portion is ranked 223,842nd in the world and 17th in Graveyard for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -17.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
