The Republic of Racing is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 7.875 billion Racingians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Social Policy, and International Aid. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.
The strong Racingian economy, worth 343 trillion Checkered Flags a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 43,575 Checkered Flags, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,492 per year while the poor average 216, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.
Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Racing's national animal is the Speed Demon.
