The Republic of Raccoon Creek is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 424 million Raccoon Creekers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raton Laveur. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Raccoon Creek economy, worth 37.8 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,039 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raccoon Creek's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raccoon Creek is ranked 25,537th in the world and 135th in Forest for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
