The Rogue Nation of Gravedig is a small, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-working population of 36 million Gravedigers 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Spirituality, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Industry isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Gravediger economy, worth 1.58 trillion Flowers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,845 Flowers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, prison overcrowding is being addressed with a series of short sharp shocks, and the military has declared war on all religious influence. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gravedig's national animal is the Vulture.

Gravedig is ranked 55,244th in the world and 11th in The Marmalades for Nicest Citizens, with 14.64 Average Smiles Per Day.
