The Socialist Republic of Craigsgrad is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.919 billion Craigsgradians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of People's City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Craigsgradian economy, worth a remarkable 2,539 trillion bottlecaps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 213,101 bottlecaps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, Craigsgradians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. Craigsgrad's national animal is the goomba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Craigsgrad is ranked 82nd in the world and 6th in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 10,228.21 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
