The Very Chilly Republic of Greater Tagrai is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.6 billion Greater Tagraians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aikituk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Tagraian economy, worth 169 trillion Nuukkilos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 106,076 Nuukkilos, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 573,222 per year while the poor average 10,167, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, and foragers descend on national cemeteries for 'all-you-can-dig-up' extravaganzas. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Greater Tagrai's national animal is the Seizedem Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Tagrai is ranked 204,199th in the world and 124th in Thegye for Largest Governments, scoring 7.87 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
