The New Federation Member World of Raptorstan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Makknokk Ekknakk with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.322 billion Raptorstanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raptoria. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Raptorstanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,704 trillion Uthoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 204,779 Uthoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, political candidates are regularly blocked for minor convictions from their teenage years, and masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raptorstan's national animal is the Raptorian Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Terran Blood.

Raptorstan is ranked 150,820th in the world and 6th in New Terran Blood for Most Devout, with 5.62 Prayers Per Hour.
