The Principality of Rassera is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Todd Cardinal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.373 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the underground Rassera Geofront. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rasseran economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 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 179,747 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Evangelionball fields, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. 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 5,967th in the world and 15th in Spiritus for Safest, scoring 126.23 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
