The Republic of Selfgradatude is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.026 billion Selfgradatudeans 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Selfgradatude City. The average income tax rate is 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Selfgradatude to be bombproof. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, 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, and its currency is the dollar.
