Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederation of North Gralend is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Garrett Graves with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.523 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, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Haven City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient North Gralendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,419 trillion Northern Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,744 Northern Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that North Gralend will pay them to stop, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Northerners can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". 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 2,897th in the world and 10th in Wintreath for Healthiest Citizens, with 21.62 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
