The Grand Theocratic Aristocracy of Grazi is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Theocratic 1% with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.028 billion subjects of the Theocratic 1% are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouvelle Orléans. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient peasantry economy, worth a remarkable 3,429 trillion Doubloons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 487,949 Doubloons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,570,119 per year while the poor average 4,393, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Grazi flights to avoid the pay lavatories, teenagers can't decide if they're more embarrassed by their parents or the country's leader, and only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grazi's national animal is the Lower Classes, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aristocracism.

Grazi is ranked 12,446th in the world and 645th in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 22,991.7 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
