The Winterfall of The Imperial Grand Drall is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Marius Rahl with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.424 billion greedy mortals are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Le Banque. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The all-consuming a greedy mortal economy, worth 437 trillion gold bars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 180,342 gold bars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 940,124 per year while the poor average 18,642, a ratio of 50.4 to 1.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the clergy of Capitalism remains a single-sex institution, Marius Rahl's former secretary was last sighted on her new yacht, and sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Imperial Grand Drall's national animal is the Purring Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

The Imperial Grand Drall is ranked 128,036th in the world and 5,497th in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 31.66 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
