The Riparian Procyonid Republic of Raccoon Creek is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.904 billion Raccoon Creekers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterbury. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raccoon Creek economy, worth 360 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,286 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, glamping Raccoon Creekers won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and Raccoon Creek's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio. 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 20,728th in the world and 107th in Forest for Highest Average Incomes, with 124,286.29 Standard Monetary Units.
