The Jolly Santa Hegemony of Racoda is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rudolph with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.353 billion Racodans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racoda City. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Racodan economy, worth a remarkable 1,019 trillion cookies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 82,539 cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime is totally unknown. Racoda's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Racoda is ranked 9,469th in the world and 560th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.53 years.
