The Federation of Gramophone VII is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 473 million Gramophonics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phonographia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Gramophonic economy, worth 42.6 trillion Vinyls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 90,015 Vinyls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 318,625 per year while the poor average 18,361, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gramophone VII's national animal is the Victrola, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gramophone VII is ranked 132,825th in the world and 181st in Last Flight for Most Primitive, scoring -153.39 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
