Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The The Democratic Union of Rackenshan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President James Black with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.115 billion Rackenshanians 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rackenshan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.8%.

The thriving Rackenshanian economy, worth 516 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 101,023 Gold Coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Rackenshan's national animal is the The Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Racken Mythology.

Rackenshan is ranked 1,148th in Balder and 43,116th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
