The Federation of Recon Island is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Marshal James Yoast with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 874 million Recon Islandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wheatland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Recon Islandian economy, worth 139 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 159,308 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 459,386 per year while the poor average 43,856, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Wheatland River, Marshal James Yoast's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and visions of giant pink Coyotes are a common side effect after Recon Islandians eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Recon Island's national animal is the Coyote, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Recon Island is ranked 2,679th in the world and 125th in 10000 Islands for Most Influential, scoring 34,180 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
