The Alföldi People's Republic of Ypogegrammeni is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grigoris Lambrakis with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.445 billion Ypogegrammeniots enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiryns. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Ypogegrammeniot economy, worth 686 trillion drachms a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,375 drachms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege Tiryns's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ypogegrammeni's national animal is the ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is its national religion.

Ypogegrammeni is ranked 252,299th in the world and 293rd in Forest for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -15.26 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
