The Rejected Reject of Rejectlan of Gradea is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.348 billion Gradeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanford. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gradean economy, worth 411 trillion dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,988 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, and Gradean husbands are dead good at fathering kids. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gradea's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gradea is ranked 25,185th in the world and 610th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.69 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
