The Free Land of FarmerGroot is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Treebeard with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 878 million FarmerGrootians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grootville. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming FarmerGrootian economy, worth 96.9 trillion Leaves a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,411 Leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Treebeard and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, FarmerGroot recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to FarmerGrootian politicians. Crime is totally unknown. FarmerGroot's national animal is the Tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

FarmerGroot is ranked 242,782nd in the world and 4th in The Order of Puff Puff Jedi for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
