OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of RG is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.062 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt government devotes most of its attentions to Healthcare, with areas such as Social Welfare and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RG City. Income tax is unheard of. 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.

RG's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, all children are supposed to be schooled by their parents, RG's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over WWSETI, and historical fiction has been banned. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 1st in WWSETI and 2,763rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 5 on the Hayek Index.
