The Socialist Republic of Rectionk is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Minister Jansson with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.471 billion Rectionians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rectonia. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rectionkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,167 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 261,081 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, prospective secessionists nervously declare how worthless and unimportant they are, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rectionk's national animal is the lemur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rectionk is ranked 257,968th in the world and 10,442nd in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.4 bananas ingested per day.
