The Cosmic Horror of Grave_n_idle is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Primarch with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, soft-spoken computers, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 29.215 billion Gravins are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wyrding Way. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Grave_n_idlean economy, worth a remarkable 6,226 trillion Gold Idols a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 213,114 Gold Idols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and 'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grave_n_idle's national animal is the Ghost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cthulhu.

Grave_n_idle is ranked 523rd in the world and 14th in Balder for Lowest Crime Rates, with 185.64 law-abiding acts per hour.
