The Bailiwick of Renesslaer is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Royal Majesty King Ridenour XIV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.301 billion Renesslaerians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lourdes. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Renesslaer's national animal is the imperial lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Church of Renesslaer, and its currency is the Sovereign.

Renesslaer is ranked 1st in British Isles and 89th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 94 on the Enoch Index.
