The Cyberocracy of Gratefuland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Illusive Mastermind with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.375 billion Gratefulandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Wartburg. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gratefulandian economy, worth 143 trillion thankyoús a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 104,472 thankyoús, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime is totally unknown. Gratefuland's national animal is the seraph, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hedonistic utilitarianism.

Gratefuland is ranked 31,774th in the world and 1,065th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
