Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Bailiwick of Renesslaer is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Royal Majesty King Ridenour XIV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.537 billion Renesslaerians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lourdes. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Renesslaerian economy, worth a remarkable 6,231 trillion Sovereigns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 318,984 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Renesslaer's national animal is the imperial lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Renesslaer.

Renesslaer is ranked 1st in Societam Universalis and 130th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring 3,275 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
