The Holy Violet Matriarchy of Racoda is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.111 billion Racodans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racoda City. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Racodan economy, worth 683 trillion cookies 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 slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 75,051 cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', society has literally been thrown to the wolves, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Racoda's national animal is the ant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Racoda is ranked 22,205th in the world and 1,089th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 78.73 on the Human Development Index.
