The Irish Empire of Raccooniah is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Solidare III with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.051 billion Raccoons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyan City. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raccooniahian economy, worth 330 trillion Atoms 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 Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. 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 161,310 Atoms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, and incompetent former soldiers have been re-employed as incompetent cleaners and kitchen staff. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raccooniah's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Southern Raccooniahan Orthodoxy.

Raccooniah is ranked 23,930th in the world and 1,306th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
