The Love you all 💖 of Grandfather Clock is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Clocksmith with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, lack of airports, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.069 billion Grandfather Clocks are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Healthcare, Public Transport, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clockworks Central. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.8%.

The frighteningly efficient a Grandfather Clock economy, worth 413 trillion verges a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 81,532 verges, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 660,353 per year while the poor average 2,244, a ratio of 294 to 1.

Footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, the elderly are killed softly with a song, religious figures have been banned from public holidays to make them more multicultural, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grandfather Clock's national animal is the pendulum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is punctuality.

Grandfather Clock is ranked 182,109th in the world and 657th in Europeia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -6 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
