The Empire of Gradanon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Cecilia with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.075 billion Gradeons are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darnstrad. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gradanonian economy, worth 105 trillion Vulpions a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,116 Vulpions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gradanon's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gradanon is ranked 220,317th in the world and 87th in Union of Allied States for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
