The Trearchy of RaFLaNdIa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sir Tre Treeson with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.402 billion Trees have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Tress. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trese economy, worth 504 trillion Traes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,274 Traes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RaFLaNdIa's national animal is the Tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Trees.

RaFLaNdIa is ranked 12,854th in the world and 5th in Coldonia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,288.88 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
