The Lunar Black Hawk of RachHawk043 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.542 billion Raches are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.8%.
The strong Rach economy, worth 71.3 trillion gold coins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 46,260 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.
Antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, public enemies often walk home with spotless garments and crime records, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. RachHawk043's national animal is the monster.
