The Parlimentary Republic of Rabinia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alistair Wilson with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed population of 2.088 billion Rabinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowanwood. The average income tax rate is 25.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rabinian economy, worth 189 trillion euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,679 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and television executives are interested in turning Alistair Wilson's zany home life into a sitcom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rabinia's national animal is the sparrowhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rabinia is ranked 175,142nd in the world and 5th in The Erasa System for Most Armed, with 0.25 Weapons Per Person.
