The Republic of Recon is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 11.789 billion Reconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Reconian economy, worth 841 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,379 Gold Dragons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Recon after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Recon's national animal is the Kraken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Recon is ranked 33,298th in the world and 1st in Recon for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 170.96 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
