The Holy Empire of GreatestStan is a huge, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, devout population of 535 million GreateStstanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.4%.

The all-consuming GreatestStanian economy, worth 44.7 trillion Bytecoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,513 Bytecoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Several inches are being added to first class seating, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, and brains have been removed from lists of best brain foods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GreatestStan's national animal is the Goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

GreatestStan is ranked 71,754th in the world and 5th in The Cult of the Powerful for Most Average, scoring 41.41 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
