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 restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.849 billion Renesslaerians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, airport security is provided by private companies, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 264th in United Kingdom and 112,495th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -28 on the Hayek Index.
