The People's Republic of Graad is a tiny, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8 million Graadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Graadian economy, worth 324 billion ReŠls a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,607 ReŠls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Graad's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Graad is ranked 162,530th in the world and 16th in Sandboxers for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
