The Kingdom of Grodisze
“Vos estis sal terrae; vos estis lux mundi”

The Kingdom of Grodisze is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Bogumił I Popielowski with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 968 million Grodiszeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Letnica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Grodiszean economy, worth 116 trillion piasts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 120,858 piasts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 386,862 per year while the poor average 28,661, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.
There are no more heroes any more, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, Bogumił I Popielowski makes and breaks shaky peace deals in 140 characters or less, and the government is lending a hand to private industry. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Grodisze's national animal is the white-tailed eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
