The Cyberocracy of Gratefuland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Illusive Mastermind with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.172 billion Gratefulandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Wartburg. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gratefulandian economy, worth 117 trillion thankyoús a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,340 thankyoús, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime is totally unknown. Gratefuland's national animal is the seraph, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Optimistic determinism.

Gratefuland is ranked 132,706th in the world and 5,110th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.7 Obesity Rate.
