The Free Land of Readona is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.699 billion Readonans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Readonan economy, worth 52.4 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,854 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Newlywed misogynists complain about their wives keeping their maiden names, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Readona's national animal is the bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Readona is ranked 78,058th in the world and 2nd in Den for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,154.95 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
