The Bailiwick of Renesslaer is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Royal Majesty King Ridenour XIV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.337 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.

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.

Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, major cities are suffering under water rationing, all forms of advertising are banned, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 220th in British Isles and 111,608th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -26 on the Hayek Index.
