The Republic of Rafferty Street is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.189 billion Rafferty Streetians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The strong Rafferty Streetian economy, worth 179 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 56,415 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 365,187 per year while the poor average 3,494, a ratio of 104 to 1.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rafferty Street's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Rafferty Street is ranked 11,918th in the world and 1st in BLT Alliance for Most Pro-Market, scoring 95.25 on the Rand Index.
