The Republic of Raspotochje is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic population of 550 million Raspotochjeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kotiga. The average income tax rate is 14.9%.

The thriving Raspotochjean economy, worth 48.4 trillion Oronts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 88,062 Oronts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, the government is spending billions of Oronts on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Raspotochje's new capital, and museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Raspotochje's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Raspotochje is ranked 43,751st in the world and 69th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Developed, scoring 67.88 on the Human Development Index.
