The Matriarchy of Outer Raxweny is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, soft-spoken computers, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 309 million Outer Raxwenyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Education and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uh'eagl ot Verla. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.5%.

The powerhouse Outer Raxwenyian economy, worth 31.2 trillion Rvylahs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 100,901 Rvylahs, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Outer Raxweny Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, the new Outer Raxwenyian-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, and art criticism in Outer Raxweny is scathingly destructive. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Outer Raxweny's national animal is the Moth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Outer Raxweny is ranked 22,214th in the world and 22nd in Cyrannus Star System for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 6,534.77 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
