The Confederation of North Gralend is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Alan Wakefield with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.834 billion Northerners enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Haven City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient North Gralendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,760 trillion Northern Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 199,242 Northern Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the NGBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Gralend's national animal is the Northern Gold Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

North Gralend is ranked 1,426th in the world and 2nd in Wintreath for Safest, scoring 146.49 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
