The Animal Farm of Grottammare is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Napoleon with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.305 billion Grottammareans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Barn. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Grottammarean economy, worth a remarkable 6,773 trillion Old Majors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 203,384 Old Majors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grottammare's national animal is the Middle White, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Animalism.

Grottammare is ranked 257,943rd in the world and 16th in Caribbean for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -42.9 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
