The Democratic Republic of Graemania is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Madison Lyfrau with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.665 billion Graemanians 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 Graemesburg. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Graemanian economy, worth 287 trillion Graham Crackers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,403 Graham Crackers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', children are raised bilingual from an early age, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Graham Cracker mansions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Graemania's national animal is the Graemanian Giant Sequoia Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Graemania is ranked 113,917th in the world and 1,106th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 16.73 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
