Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Racing is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, restrictive gun laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.798 billion Racingians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, International Aid, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racing City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.1%.

The strong Racingian economy, worth 580 trillion Checkered Flags a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 49,217 Checkered Flags, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,151 per year while the poor average 440, a ratio of 1,046 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', and artificial intelligence seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Racing's national animal is the Speed Demon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Racing is ranked 56,433rd in the world and 28th in Esportiva for Most Extreme, scoring 20.91 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
