The Armed Republic of Rapaganda is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its aversion to nipples, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 480 million Rapagandans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rapagandia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.9%.

The thriving Rapagandan economy, worth 42.1 trillion Rapandian Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 87,793 Rapandian Caps, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 315,048 per year while the poor average 17,533, a ratio of 18.0 to 1.

Getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, movie references are legally admissible in court, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rapaganda's national animal is the Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rapaganda is ranked 89,555th in the world and 28th in Selene for Highest Economic Output, with 42.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
