OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of RG is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.842 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, artists are pillars of society, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and RG's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms. 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 23,168th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 24 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
