The Republic of Gravy is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 898 million Gravyians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.5%.

The very strong Gravyian economy, worth 64.7 trillion Potatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 72,068 Potatoes, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Gravy's radio stations, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gravy's national animal is the Turkey.

Gravy is ranked 54,933rd in the world and 3rd in Thanksgiving for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 79.26 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
