The People's Democratic Republic of Disgraces is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Miserarch with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 4.581 billion Miserables 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Miseria. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Miserable economy, worth a remarkable 1,023 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 223,400 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, it's all quiet on the western front, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Disgraces's national animal is the naked mole-rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Apatheism.

Disgraces is ranked 13,117th in the world and 2nd in Hellhole for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 3 valid endorsements.
