The Republic of Selfgradatude is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by president Donald Trump with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.918 billion Selfgradatudeans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Selfgradatude City. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Selfgradatudean economy, worth a remarkable 1,140 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 57,278 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a fit of passion president Donald Trump has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selfgradatude's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Selfgradatude is ranked 200,924th in the world and 9,385th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.37 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
