The Republic of Liam Grant is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 128 million Liam Grantians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.6%.

The very strong Liam Grantian economy, worth 7.14 trillion Pounds a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 55,755 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, everybody's got wood thanks to Leader, high school bands practice by moonlight, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liam Grant's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Liam Grant is ranked 110,251st in the world and 906th in Europeia for Most Average, scoring 38.02 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
