The Allied States of Rakavo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Grand Pensionary Hana-Luoka Sankaidenni with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.243 billion Rakavoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orsimme. The average income tax rate is 71.5%.

The strong Rakavoan economy, worth 83.4 trillion Kaibs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,111 Kaibs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rakavo's national animal is the Harrier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kakinida Apsaeppa.

Rakavo is ranked 73,234th in the world and 11th in Regionless for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 135,097.95 Standard Monetary Units.
