The Kingdom of Rarukurima is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Ritsu Raku the 2nd with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 3.422 billion Rarukurimen are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furitsu. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rarukurimany economy, worth 525 trillion Rakus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,497 Rakus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, sleazy politicians exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals, Rarukurimen caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Rarukurimany language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rarukurima's national animal is the Stealthy Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cthulhuism.

Rarukurima is ranked 38,080th in the world and 301st in 10000 Islands for Highest Economic Output, with 525 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
