The Principality of Rassera is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Todd Cardinal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.487 billion Rasserans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the underground Rassera Geofront. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rasseran economy, worth 925 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,689 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

'Evangelionnado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, and ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen. Crime is totally unknown. Rassera's national animal is the Evangelion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rassera is ranked 58,568th in the world and 93rd in Spiritus for Most Average, scoring 41.69 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
