The Democratic Republic of Gragastavia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Farouk Al-Hussein with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.617 billion Gragastavians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Al-Duhaba. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gragastavian economy, worth a remarkable 8,292 trillion Gragastavian Riyals a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 270,832 Gragastavian Riyals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries, shops were recently ransacked as cigarettes returned to the shelves, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Gragastavia, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gragastavia's national animal is the Camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Polatilianism.

Gragastavia is ranked 257,766th in the world and 26th in Teremara for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -32.4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
