Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Unholy Authocracy of Redrake is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Red with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 21.591 billion Redrakeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redrakovia. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Redrakean economy, worth 126 trillion red coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,855 red coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Redrakeans have replaced bears in a popular idiom, anyone who so much as looks at Royalty without the proper amount of deference is jailed, research into 'designer babies' is banned, and hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Redrake's national animal is the hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Reformed Church of Banjo.

Redrake is ranked 152,613th in the world and 3rd in The Black Isle for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -22.57 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
