The Incorporated States of Raldeb is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 447 million Raldebians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Raldebian economy, worth 15.1 trillion Ricks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 33,722 Ricks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, every workday begins with group therapy, victims of limb-mauling industrial accidents are told to keep working with their remaining hand, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raldeb's national animal is the Rock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raldeb is ranked 145,647th in the world and 7,681st in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 13.1 Atheism Rate.
