The Dictatorship of Raseus is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 609 million Raseusians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Raseusian economy, worth 43.8 trillion Ducats a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,892 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Raseusian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raseus's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Raseus is ranked 110,675th in the world and 5,962nd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
