The Alföldi People's Republic of Ypogegrammeni is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Grigoris Lambrakis with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.902 billion Ypogegrammeniots enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiryns. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Ypogegrammeniot economy, worth 546 trillion drachms a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,284 drachms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Ypogegrammeniot weed picker are way up, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ypogegrammeni's national animal is the ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is its national religion.

Ypogegrammeni is ranked 19,711th in the world and 123rd in Forest for Largest Governments, scoring 26 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
