The North American Conglomerate of The Grand Technate is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ghost of Overseer Clint Woods with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.819 billion Techies are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ottawa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Technatean economy, worth 569 trillion Technatean Pounds 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. 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 impressive 149,194 Technatean Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Techies visiting rural Southern Great Horned Owl Village can get their driving records clean for a small fee, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grand Technate's national animal is the Great Horned Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Grand Technate is ranked 15,977th in the world and 3rd in Institute of Cellulose for Most Developed, scoring 85.31 on the Human Development Index.
