Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Grafenland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Florian IV of Grafenland with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.821 billion Grafenlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grafenkron. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.5%.

The very strong Grafenlandian economy, worth 106 trillion Kroner a year, is highly specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 37,584 Kroner, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 203,868 per year while the poor average 3,573, a ratio of 57.1 to 1.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, the country is littered with broken homes, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Grafenland's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Grafenland is ranked 163,011th in the world and 191st in Norrland for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.05 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
