Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Ral System Capital World of Ral Ixshida is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Simon Crowe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.232 billion Hylians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latsudan. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Hylian economy, worth a remarkable 7,959 trillion Hylian Rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 315,471 Hylian Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is totally unknown. Ral Ixshida's national animal is the Cavuu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Triforianism.

Ral Ixshida is ranked 112,665th in the world and 2nd in The Triphorian Empire for Most Authoritarian, with 0.06 Stalins.
