The Principality of Rassera is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Todd Cardinal with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.901 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, with Healthcare, Defense, and Public Transport also on the agenda, 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 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rasseran economy, worth a remarkable 1,466 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 185,612 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Mark battlesuits, kindergartens are full of kids dressed as superheroes and princesses, and ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing. 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 22,552nd in the world and 36th in Spiritus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 278,210.4 Standard Monetary Units.
