The Glorious Armed Proletariat of The Land of the Red Rainbow is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mikkel Sikkel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 23.715 billion Reds are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sovkagrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Red economy, worth a remarkable 7,210 trillion Shiny Sikkels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 304,046 Shiny Sikkels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, the new Red-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Land of the Red Rainbow's national animal is the antigay, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gaytheism.

The Land of the Red Rainbow is ranked 23,593rd in the world and 67th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 312,454 Standard Monetary Units.
