The Republic of Raul43 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.001 billion Raul43ians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Raul43ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,048 trillion deniers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,645 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, weathermen are being arrested for attempting to read the future, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raul43's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Raul43 is ranked 55,865th in the world and 1,628th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 7.28 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
