The Glorious Eternal Empire of Ragnarum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief Director Oliver with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.841 billion Ragnarans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Szeandhem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ragnarumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,438 trillion Ragnums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 231,693 Ragnums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 814,376 per year while the poor average 47,773, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Ratings for schools' curricula range from 'Pure as the Driven Snow' to 'Late Night TV', convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime is totally unknown. Ragnarum's national animal is the Opponian Wolfdog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Modern Ragnaran Deism.

Ragnarum is ranked 24,185th in the world and 573rd in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
