The Holy Blue of High Reiserland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chief Councillor Malcolm Clouston with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.454 billion Reiserlanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Důn Čideann. The average income tax rate is 61.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Reiserlandic economy, worth 138 trillion Reiserlandic Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 95,093 Reiserlandic Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers. Crime is totally unknown. High Reiserland's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Presbyterianism.

High Reiserland is ranked 207,290th in the world and 160th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring -223.1 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
