The Republic of BigRed44 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its aversion to nipples, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.928 billion BigRed44ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong BigRed44ian economy, worth 104 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 54,075 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children asking questions about science are referred to relevant sections in religious texts, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, and hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BigRed44's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BigRed44 is ranked 144,247th in the world and 4,666th in the Rejected Realms for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
