The Capitalist Democracy of Ranzhai is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Minister Townsend with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.735 billion Ranzhaians 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 Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virtuous City. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ranzhaian economy, worth 337 trillion Quachis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 90,452 Quachis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and the government pours millions of Quachis into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ranzhai's national animal is the stallion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Norse Pagan.

Ranzhai is ranked 231,932nd in the world and 2nd in Jaoheah for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 38 Whatever.
