Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Empire of Rackenshan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President James Black with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.664 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 Rome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.4%.

The thriving Rackenshanian economy, worth 571 trillion Rackens a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,951 Rackens, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Rackenshan's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Rackenshan is ranked 12th in Democritus and 28,319th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 19 on the Enoch Index.
