The Republic of Gruffydd ap Llywelyn 7 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The cynical, devout population of 11.081 billion Gruffydd ap Llywelyn 7ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Gruffydd ap Llywelyn 7ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,079 trillion FRAS a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,424 FRAS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, all children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gruffydd ap Llywelyn 7's national animal is the fro, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gruffydd ap Llywelyn 7 is ranked 43,210th in the world and 736th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,069.97 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
