The Confederation of North Gralend is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Miroslav Delahunt with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.339 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient North Gralendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,875 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 amazing 200,798 Northern Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of President Miroslav Delahunt have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, all recreational drugs are legal, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50. 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 Gralich Catharism.

North Gralend is ranked 47,699th in the world and 64th in Wintreath for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.95 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
