The Rogue Nation of Grosjean is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kane with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.416 billion Slaves are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NOD MegaComplex. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.9%.

The frighteningly efficient homeless economy, worth 180 trillion Tiberiums a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,364 Tiberiums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 770,403 per year while the poor average 9,420, a ratio of 81.8 to 1.

Children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, discarded pennies litter the streets, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grosjean's national animal is the Warhead, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is NOD.

Grosjean is ranked 31,313th in the world and 3rd in The City of Ba Sing Se for Most Developed, scoring 74.58 on the Human Development Index.
