The Commune of Rakauara is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.702 billion Rakuans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Rakauaran economy, worth 29.6 trillion Cowry Shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 17,376 Cowry Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, military funding has been stripped back, surveillance cameras are banned, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rakauara's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rakauara is ranked 33,273rd in the world and 1st in South pacific gyre for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 75.11 Workforce Participation Rate.
