The Confederacy of Degranil is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.025 billion Degranis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The all-consuming Degranilian economy, worth 96.2 trillion degras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 93,888 degras, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, homesickness is thought to be a waterborne illness, and protestors are soaking piles of degras in blood to make a point about government incomes. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Degranil's national animal is the Money Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Degranil is ranked 3,862nd in the world and 8th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 11.94 Weapons Per Person.
