The Empire of Rapee is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Podee with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, triple-decker prams, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.097 billion Rapeeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krung Ton Sai. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rapeean economy, worth 392 trillion Polies a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,884 Polies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to King Podee's wardrobe, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rapee's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Rapee is ranked 15,293rd in the world and 45th in The Western Isles for Most Developed, scoring 80.5 on the Human Development Index.
