The Kingdom of King Rankmore is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Rankmore with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.188 billion King Rankmoreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KingRankopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient King Rankmorean economy, worth a remarkable 3,983 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 280,782 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over King Rankmore, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Rankmore's national animal is the Red Back Spider, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cricket.

King Rankmore is ranked 143,355th in the world and 30th in Australia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.57 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
