OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The The Democratic Union of Rackenshan is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by President James Black with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.239 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rackenshan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Racken Mythology, and its currency is the Gold Coin.

Rackenshan is ranked 35th in Aysling and 103,807th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -178.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
