The Republic of Graveyards is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 20.678 billion Graveyardsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Graveyardsian economy, worth 812 trillion dubsteps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 39,275 dubsteps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Graveyards's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Graveyards is ranked 23,386th in the world and 6th in Grand Central for Highest Economic Output, with 812 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
