The Rogue Nation of Grug Village is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 460 million Grug are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grug Village. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Grug economy, worth 54.8 trillion stones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 119,099 stones, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,079,369 per year while the poor average 1,544, a ratio of 698 to 1.

The nation's healthcare system has taken a "survival of the fittest" approach in administering care, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and royal mothers accustomed to baby-talk assure the troops "we gweatly wespect your service; yes, we do". Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Grug Village's national animal is the Mammoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Grug Village is ranked 185,006th in the world and 978th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 32.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
