Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Selfgradatude is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.296 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 — prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Selfgradatude City. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Selfgradatudean economy, worth 715 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Average income is 53,783 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. 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 115,670th in the world and 6,326th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 18.65 on the Hayek Index.
