The Queen's State of Et Gradivus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.589 billion Et Gradivusians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The powerhouse Et Gradivusian economy, worth 686 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 41,403 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 146,555 per year while the poor average 8,445, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Et Gradivus's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Et Gradivus is ranked 134,952nd in the world and 5th in Hessen for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 692.37 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
