The Rogue Nation of Red Intria is a small, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 40 million Red Intrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Red Intrian economy, worth 750 billion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 18,762 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vote-counting is replacing kitchen patrol as the least glamorous army work, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Intria's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Red Intria is ranked 31,283rd in the world and 1,012th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 74.04 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
