Grov Portion

Population349 million

CapitalPenurie 3


The Dictatorship of Grov Portion is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 349 million Grov Portioner 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 tiny, 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 Penurie 3. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The powerhouse a Grov Portion economy, worth 33.8 trillion Diors a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 96,964 Diors, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 407,021 per year while the poor average 15,014, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the country is littered with broken homes, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, and hairdressers are forced to use all the tricks of the trade after citizens became required to wear helmets at all times. Crime is a problem, 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 OTT, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Grov Portion is ranked 22,505th in the world and 114th in Europeia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,113.44 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
