The Scots Nationalist Illuminite of Griffenhaven is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nicola Sturgeon with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.904 billion Griffenhavenites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newlands. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Griffenhavenitian economy, worth a remarkable 1,684 trillion Griveses 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. 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 170,088 Griveses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path. Crime is totally unknown. Griffenhaven's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of the Latter Day Saints.
