The United Republic of Radicaster is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Halsten Lubbert with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.965 billion Radicastrians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balresk. The average income tax rate is 82.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Radicastrian economy, worth 716 trillion Osean Units 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 an amazing 241,665 Osean Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The question of 'what is Halsten Lubbert's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, Radicaster's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Radicaster's national animal is the bird-of-paradise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Radicaster is ranked 116,190th in the world and 5,824th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 37.74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
