The Most Unholy Authocracy of Redrake is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Red with an even hand, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, triple-decker prams, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, devout population of 24.679 billion Redrakeans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redrakovia. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Redrakean economy, worth 149 trillion red coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming. 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 6,046 red coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and no one is quite sure what many government officials look like. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Redrake's national animal is the hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Reformed Church of Banjo.

Redrake is ranked 107,965th in the world and 2nd in The Black Isle for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.44 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
