The Empire of Grabon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ringers with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.124 billion Grabonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grabon City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Grabonian economy, worth 197 trillion Loons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 176,020 Loons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 647,021 per year while the poor average 33,861, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

Laborers are building walls and making Wezeltonia pay for it, private law firms are unheard of, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Grabon's national animal is the Hawks, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Grabonian Orthodox.

Grabon is ranked 38,154th in the world and 500th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,416.81 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
