The Democratic Republic of Rauensteinland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Guybrush Foster with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.562 billion Rauensteiners enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mle Town. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rauensteiner economy, worth 188 trillion pieces o' eights a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,528 pieces o' eights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, people take government jobs for the frequent flier miles, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rauensteinland's national animal is the rubber chicken with a pulley, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rauensteinland is ranked 4,071st in the world and 93rd in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.47 percentage of bribes refused.
