The Federal Republic of Randbourne is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 595 million Randbourneans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldhaven. The average income tax rate is 33.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Randbournean economy, worth 63.9 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,387 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Randbourne's national animal is the Brown bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
