The Grearish Union

Population4.975 billion

LeaderGarth Ledford


The Esportivan Republic of The Grearish Union is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Garth Ledford with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.975 billion Grears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Healthcare, with Education, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atheburn. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Grearish economy, worth 217 trillion Espoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,800 Espoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, going on a diet invalidates your passport, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grearish Union's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Grearish Union is ranked 156,587th in the world and 39th in Esportiva for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 757.47 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
