The Democratic States of Ralshia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nibohagsib with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.995 billion Ralshians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mozi. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ralshian economy, worth a remarkable 1,886 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,727 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Ralshian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, t-shirts displaying a photo of Nibohagsib performing the Full-Monty are selling out, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art. Crime is totally unknown. Ralshia's national animal is the Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ralshia is ranked 1,107th in the world and 14th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Inclusive, scoring 353.54 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
