The Praline Republic of Rannoria is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Hij'e Kader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 6.595 billion Rannorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rannkradle. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rannorian economy, worth 855 trillion banjopicks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,668 banjopicks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, airport security is provided by private companies, and genetic researchers have been expelled. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rannoria's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Banjoism.

Rannoria is ranked 14,566th in the world and 10th in Federation of Allies for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.74 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
