The Theocracy of Plavagrad is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 665 million Plavagranat enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tįblagrant. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Plavagrant economy, worth 34.8 trillion Rublagrads a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,374 Rublagrads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, there are no more heroes any more, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plavagrad's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Plavagrad is ranked 201,043rd in the world and 5th in The GCNG Union for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.24 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
