The Armed Republic of Rapidian Armed Forces is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 582 million Soldiers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arsekaban Concentration Camp. The average income tax rate is 24.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Militaristic economy, worth 59.0 trillion knights a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,362 knights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rapidian Armed Forces's national animal is the balding eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Rapidian Armed Forces is ranked 31,967th in the world and 4th in Icor for Most Authoritarian, with 1,580.95 milliStalins.
