The People's Republic of Graad is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 20 million Graadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 44.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair Graadian economy, worth 717 billion ReŠls a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,861 ReŠls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Leader to cartoon bears, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 133,358th in the world and 18th in Sandboxers for Most Avoided, scoring 1.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
