OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of RG is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.977 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.

The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. 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 2nd in WWSETI and 67,906th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 57 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
