Old Ras

Population5.079 billion

CapitalOld Ras City
FaithThe Greater Pantheon


The Empire of Old Ras is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.079 billion Rasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Ras City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,036 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 204,009 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, anyone can get ahead in life if they want to, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Ras's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Greater Pantheon.

Old Ras is ranked 25,205th in the world and 1,012th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 256,545.33 Standard Monetary Units.
