The Holy Empire of Gracenland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 236 million Gracenlandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 32.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Gracenlandian economy, worth 8.67 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,751 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Nudity is frowned upon, news headlines usually include p-values, breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gracenland's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gracenland is ranked 132,077th in the world and 36th in The Shadow League for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -3.95 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
