The Part Time Troll Nation of GraVandius is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Antonio GraVandius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, fear of technology, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.537 billion GraVandiusians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vandius City. The average income tax rate is 73.9%.

The frighteningly efficient GraVandiusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,440 trillion Dramacas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 136,700 Dramacas, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, being Antonio GraVandius has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and the government is paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GraVandius's national animal is the Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

GraVandius is ranked 90,800th in the world and 448th in Europeia for Most Extreme, scoring 19.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
