The Empire of Old Ras is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.701 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 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Rasian economy, worth 961 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 204,537 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad. 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 769th in the world and 18th in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.74 on the Human Development Index.
