The People's Republic of Redblanket is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Delz Gegg with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.585 billion Redblanketians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Massecr. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Redblanketian economy, worth 164 trillion peon droves a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,670 peon droves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adultery has been made a capital offence, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, and the new intercity submarine SSN Teddy Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers. Crime is totally unknown. Redblanket's national animal is the teddy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnosticism.

Redblanket is ranked 112,779th in the world and 7th in Extalia for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 20,319.45 Standard Monetary Units.
