Agratele, officially the Kingdom of Agratele, is a sovereign country comprising of the North Pacific archipelago, the island of Oskaria, and numerous smaller islands. It is one of multiple countries in Oceania and one of the world's largest archipelago countries by land area. The population of 3 billion is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the southern coast of the archipelago. The Agratele's capital and largest city is Westerfair, a global city and financial centre with an urban area population of 110 million, one of the largest in the world. The country's other major cities are Dulselthend, Ertonrith, Fammont, and Esterford.

Agratele is a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy. The monarch is King Patricio II, who has reigned since 1982, making him one of the world's longest-serving current head of state.

Indigenous Agreteleans inhabited the North Pacific Archipelago for about 20,000 years prior to the first arrival of British explorers in the early 17th century, who named the Agretelea region, Newland Settlement in 1692. In 1774, following disputes between colonists and indigenous peoples, Newland Settlement declared independence from the United Kingdom, forming the Newland Free State. After the inconclusive First North Pacific War, the Kingdom of Nagloynia created a union, forming the Kingdom of Agratele on 22 January 1800, a date which became Agratele's national day. During both World Wars, Agratele was aligned with the Allied powers. In 1949, King Rolfe VI formed a new constitution, which transitioned the country to a constitutional monarchy. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades, and by the time of the late 20th century, Agratele's economy was growing at a large rate due to new developments in the North Pacific region. Agratele has since maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that comprises of 23 states and two territories.

Agratele is situated on the oldest inhabited archipelago, with some of the most fertile and moist soils. It has a landmass of 692,024 km^2. Despite its relatively small size, it is a megadiverse country with a wide variety of landscapes, with deserts and mountain ranges in the north, tropical rainforests in the south-west, and natural grasslands in the south-east. Australia generates its income from various sources, including Information Technology, Manufacturing, Agriculture and Tourism.

Agratele is a highly developed country, with the world's largest economies (top 13%). It has a high-income economy, with one of the the world's highest per capita income. Immigration accounts for 25% of the population, one of the highest proportions in any country with a population over 1 billion. Having a very high human development index (top 10%) and one of the highest ranked democracies globally, the country ranks highly in quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, civil liberties and political rights, with all its major cities faring well in global comparative livability and environmental surveys.

Agratele is currently a great power, with considerable economic, cultural, military, scientific and political influence internationally. It has also considered as a potential superpower. It is a recognised nuclear weapons state and is in the top 20% of countries' military expenditure in the world.

Agratele is a member of the World Assembly (WA), WA Security Council, G20, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and the Pacific Islands Forum. It has been a member of The North Pacific region (NP) for 2 years, since January 2018.
