OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of RG is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.551 billion RGians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Religion & Spirituality and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RG City. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.

All weapon research has been banned, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout RG after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 sparkling oceans, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Paper Otter.

RG is ranked 2nd in WWSETI and 110,980th in the world for Most Average, scoring -1,247 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
