The Commonwealth of Granbury is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 250 million Granburyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkswell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.7%.

The thriving Granburyian economy, worth 22.7 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,963 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, the government asks not what you can do for your country but what you can do to tidy their country homes, and Granbury has designated Kirkswell as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Granbury's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Granbury is ranked 56,274th in the world and 138th in The Free Nations Region for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 86.5 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
