The Confederacy of Degranil is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 747 million Degranis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The all-consuming Degranilian economy, worth 71.5 trillion degras a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 95,712 degras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 479,636 per year while the poor average 10,714, a ratio of 44.8 to 1.

Women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", concussed Money Cowball players cannot remember their lineup position, Degranis are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom, and health-conscious denizens drink their dogs' water. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Degranil's national animal is the Money Cow.

Degranil is ranked 133,346th in the world and 168th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 711.43 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
