The Principality of Rassera is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Todd Cardinal with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.757 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the underground Rassera Geofront. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rasseran economy, worth a remarkable 1,221 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,791 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The comic book series 'Todd Cardinal and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, proprietary charger leads are now a pain for electric cars as well as cellphones, and internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rassera's national animal is the Evangelion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rassera is ranked 9,120th in the world and 29th in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 87.25 on the Human Development Index.
