The Holy Empire of Graalzone is a large, orderly nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 93 million Graalzoneans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.4%.

The strong Graalzonean economy, worth 5.82 trillion Slaves a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 62,577 Slaves, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Graalzone's national animal is the Dragon from Hell.

Graalzone is ranked 48,007th in the world and 1,644th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 172,280.28 Standard Monetary Units.
