The Empire of Gradanon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Cecilia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.07 billion Gradeons are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darnstrad. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gradanonian economy, worth 104 trillion Vulpions a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,116 Vulpions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gradanon's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gradanon is ranked 153,233rd in the world and 83rd in Union of Allied States for Rudest Citizens, with 41.16 Insults Per Minute.
