The Kingdom of RG is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.506 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 concentrates mainly on 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 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.

RG's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, the teaching of evolution has been banned, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence. 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 1st in WWSETI and 1,232nd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 50 on the Enoch Index.
