The Free Land of Readona is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.469 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, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Readonan economy, worth 107 trillion sands 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 sands, 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 scarab, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Readona is ranked 71,055th in the world and 2,643rd in Suspicious for Most Income Equality, scoring 50.67 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
