The Old Hippie of Grand Elder Guru is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 18.323 billion Grand Elder Guruans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Grand Elder Guruan economy, worth 369 trillion Ganjas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 20,166 Ganjas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Grand Elder Guru's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and cars are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Elder Guru's national animal is the White Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grand Elder Guru is ranked 46,488th in the world and 1st in The Hippiedom for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
