The Confederation of Razzgriz is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Míhis II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 14.771 billion Íszkárí 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mírik Szil. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Íszkárí economy, worth a remarkable 1,452 trillion Ísks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,346 Ísks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, Míhis II's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Razzgriz's national animal is the Íszkárí Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Razzgriz is ranked 194,360th in the world and 127th in The Western Isles for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.51 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
