The Grand Protectorate of Raskana is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Andress Marick with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.143 billion Raskanens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ederhaven. The average income tax rate is 47.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Raskanen economy, worth 896 trillion Raskanen Shackles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 216,449 Raskanen Shackles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tabloids coo over President Andress Marick's expected child, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, foreign governments regularly accuse the Raskanen military of war crimes, and illegal immigration remains a hot topic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raskana's national animal is the Raskanan Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Raskanen Orthodoxy.

Raskana is ranked 79,935th in the world and 178th in 10000 Islands for Most Authoritarian, with 1,019.25 milliStalins.
