Regional Influence: Hermit
The Queen's State of Rae is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of public education, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 6.09 billion Raeans 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 minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.
The powerhouse Raean economy, worth 303 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 49,861 betales, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 285,102 per year while the poor average 4,217, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.
Rae's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the tenet of free speech is held dear, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Rae's national animal is the deer.
