The Jolly Santa Hegemony of Racoda is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Rudolph with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.376 billion Racodans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare 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 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Racodan economy, worth a remarkable 1,392 trillion cookies a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 96,874 cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Swings are banned for being a danger to children, truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and the justice of Racoda is considered superior to that of other nations. Crime is totally unknown. Racoda's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Racoda is ranked 6,775th in the world and 399th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.51 bananas ingested per day.
