The Constitutional Monarchy of Rakshuland is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 292 million Rakshulanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rakshuville. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Rakshulander economy, worth 24.6 trillion Gayulalas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,134 Gayulalas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, nose plugs are the latest Rakshulander fashion accessory, and fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rakshuland's national animal is the Chirper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
