The Republic of Selfgradatude is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by president Robert E Lee with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.239 billion Selfgradatudeans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Selfgradatude City. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Selfgradatudean economy, worth 821 trillion dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 53,919 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, many aides in president Robert E Lee's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, and the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selfgradatude's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Selfgradatude is ranked 5,460th in the world and 265th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 7,966.35 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
