The Conformist Community of Disgraces is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Master with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.206 billion Miserables are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathedral. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Miserable economy, worth 384 trillion scrap metals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 174,130 scrap metals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Disgraces's national animal is the tyrannotitan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unity.

Disgraces is ranked 186,882nd in the world and 8th in Hellhole for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.82 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
