The Democratic Republic of Grebenia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 792 million Grebenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Grebenian economy, worth 29.9 trillion Rafnas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,783 Rafnas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grebenia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
