The Kingdom of Agratele is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Patricio II with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.539 billion Agrateleans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westerfair. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Agratelean economy, worth 447 trillion Agratelis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,541 Agratelis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, replacement organs are grown in vats, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and advanced mathematics books explain how two plus two equals five. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agratele's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Agratele is ranked 173,025th in the world and 7,184th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.01 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
