The Republic of Selfgradatude is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.987 billion Selfgradatudeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Selfgradatude City. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Selfgradatudean economy, worth 375 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 47,024 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selfgradatude's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
