The Free Association of Gracieland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gloria Upson with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 39.852 billion Gracielandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gracieland City. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Gracielandian economy, worth 785 trillion gins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 19,712 gins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Gloria Upson's wardrobe, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies. Crime is totally unknown. Gracieland's national animal is the Bother Collie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gracieland is ranked 245,119th in the world and 134th in Gay for Most Primitive, scoring -893.15 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
