The Lost Paradise of Grimmywelsh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grimtooth with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.683 billion Grimmywelshians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grim City. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimmywelshian economy, worth a remarkable 3,558 trillion Faloons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 164,102 Faloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and handling people's data is proving an immersive experience. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grimmywelsh's national animal is the Lemonfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grimmywelsh is ranked 2,336th in the world and 54th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 172.59 quips per hour.
