The Grand Tribes of Ralnis is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Cheiftain Ryuf-Tyrof with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.809 billion Ralnisians 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quintafal. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ralnisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,645 trillion Kornilas Scrtifins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 230,586 Kornilas Scrtifins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 916,409 per year while the poor average 39,132, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

Pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime is totally unknown. Ralnis's national animal is the Malik, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Way of the Fourty-Two.

Ralnis is ranked 240,832nd in the world and 10,014th in Osiris for Most Beautiful Environments, with 5.59 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
