The Alföldi People's Republic of Ypogegrammeni is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grigoris Lambrakis with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.089 billion Ypogegrammeniots enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiryns. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Ypogegrammeniot economy, worth 579 trillion drachms a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,389 drachms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ypogegrammeni's national animal is the ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is its national religion.

Ypogegrammeni is ranked 12,855th in the world and 103rd in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,836.02 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
