The Principality of Rassera is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Todd Cardinal with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.164 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 Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren'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 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rasseran economy, worth a remarkable 1,733 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 189,150 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, fat-shaming is now public policy, tourists visit Rassera to mass-moon Rasseran politicians, and the news is showing footage of Todd Cardinal bullying an old man to the point of tears. 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 88,493rd in the world and 127th in Spiritus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.44 on the Rand Index.
