The Grand Principality of Razzgriz is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Míhis II with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.103 billion Iszkárient 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mirik Szil. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Iszkárien economy, worth a remarkable 1,384 trillion Isks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,646 Isks, 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 Iszkárien Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Razzgriz is ranked 13,087th in the world and 17th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 7,697.25 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
