The Republic of Raul35 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.515 billion Raul35ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Raul35ian economy, worth 997 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 180,952 marks, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raul35's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Raul35 is ranked 27,167th in the world and 802nd in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,657.18 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
