The Syndicalist Union of Ragnaria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairman of the Congress Philip Balfour with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.848 billion Ragnarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Congress City. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ragnarian economy, worth a remarkable 5,633 trillion People's Econas 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 270,206 People's Econas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ragnaria's national animal is the Akraklia, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ragnaria is ranked 157,483rd in the world and 14th in The League of Socialist States for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -19.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
