The Most Serene Republic of Raelsa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by John Doe with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 2.926 billion Raelsans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonalon. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raelsan economy, worth 310 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,050 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, and medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raelsa's national animal is the Kookaburra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Common Sense.

Raelsa is ranked 220,848th in the world and 8,258th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -239.45 on the Hayek Index.
