The Kingdom of RG is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.92 billion 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Religion & Spirituality and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RG City. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Atheists are heavily taxed, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', all children are supposed to be schooled by their parents, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. RG's national animal is the Shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Paper Otter.

RG is ranked 1st in WWSETI and 685th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 514 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
