The Islamic Republic of South Gragastavia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Mufti Harun Halabi with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.164 billion South Gragastavians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mahadid. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.1%.

The very strong South Gragastavian economy, worth 550 trillion Gragastavian riyals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 60,039 Gragastavian riyals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 182,410 per year while the poor average 15,353, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Nudity is frowned upon, South Gragastavia has designated Mahadid as its capital city, Grand Mufti Harun Halabi has just been declared ruler of South Gragastavia in an international press conference, and Sunni Islam has been named as South Gragastavia's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. South Gragastavia's national animal is the oryx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

South Gragastavia is ranked 106,214th in the world and 14th in Teremara for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
