The Republic of Raul38 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.553 billion Raul38ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raul38ian economy, worth 981 trillion baht 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 amazing 215,517 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, citizens may cast their vote by mail or phone, it is well recognised that you can't sustain communism without a bit of spirit, and the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raul38's national animal is the bison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Raul38 is ranked 2,139th in the world and 52nd in the South Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1,304 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
