The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 317 million Redinists 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 Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 26.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Redinist economy, worth 21.9 trillion Red Genes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 68,936 Red Genes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
