OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Railriders is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 17.874 billion Railridersians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing industries.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, skateparks can be found in every city, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Railriders's national animal is the mongrel, and its currency is the dime.

Railriders is ranked 6th in A Van Down by the River and 64,896th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
