The Grunts of RalphNader23 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.754 billion RalphNader23ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RalphNader23 City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

The government is seen to favor Catholics, bicyclists are banned from major roads, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. RalphNader23's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the gold piece.

RalphNader23 is ranked 3,107th in Osiris and 113,581st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -223 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
