The Dictatorship of GreatEstate is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 555 million GreatEstateans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.

The frighteningly efficient GreatEstatean economy, worth 61.3 trillion Bytecoins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 110,536 Bytecoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 421,762 per year while the poor average 20,042, a ratio of 21.0 to 1.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, the food pyramid has been replaced with the word PASTA in bold block capital letters, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GreatEstate's national animal is the Goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

GreatEstate is ranked 158,765th in the world and 12th in The Cult of the Powerful for Most Average, scoring 28.37 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
