The Federal Republic of Raidener is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mikhail Solokov with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.358 billion Icarussians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heraklion. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Icarussians economy, worth 299 trillion Kčs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 127,217 Kčs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, the justice of Raidener is considered superior to that of other nations, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Raidener's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Orthodox.

Raidener is ranked 207,260th in the world and 9,596th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.85 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
