The Republic of Reathwood is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-working, democratic population of 221 million Reathwooders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 23.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Reathwood economy, worth 13.2 trillion shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 59,562 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the aims of top-secret Reathwood science projects revolve around designing the perfect robot woman, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Reathwood's national animal is the golden drake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Reathwood is ranked 150,039th in the world and 114th in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
