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 134,983 Professions of Faith, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 382,644 per year while the poor average 38,055, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groddo's national animal is the Hoodoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
