The Federation of Graofan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the people with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.577 billion Graofanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shark Bay. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Graofanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,360 trillion Ears of Corn a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 344,135 Ears of Corn, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, artists are pillars of society, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and no one born in Graofan can fix a leaky faucet. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Graofan's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is kindness.

Graofan is ranked 6,699th in the world and 6th in Taijitu for Highest Drug Use, scoring 114 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
