The Inherent lack of Happiness of Sierra Grand is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sovereign Sierrite Ardal Leopold May with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, triple-decker prams, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.745 billion Sierrese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Elisabeth. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sierrese economy, worth 223 trillion Ʃ Freedom World Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 128,127 Ʃ Freedom World Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', discarded pennies litter the streets, and illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sierra Grand's national animal is the White Cockatoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sierra Laureate.

Sierra Grand is ranked 232,068th in the world and 19th in Amalgamated Federation for Fattest Citizens, with 5.43 Obesity Rate.
