The Democratic Republic of Gragastavia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Farouk Al-Hussein with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 34.866 billion Gragastavians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare 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 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gragastavian economy, worth a remarkable 9,403 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 269,699 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 280,772nd in the world and 32nd in Teremara for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -30.23 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
