The Colony of Redout is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its burgeoning raven population. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.714 billion Redoutians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The relatively small, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 19.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Redoutian economy, worth 315 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,450 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Redout's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Redout is ranked 83,075th in the world and 2nd in The Holy See of Vagen for Most Beautiful Environments, with 579.47 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
