Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Unholy Authocracy of Redrake is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Red with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 23.543 billion Redrakeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, well-organized 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 145 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 Gambling. 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 6,189 red coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Atheists on vacation find The Reformed Church of Banjo's scriptures make useful doorstops, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned hamsterball fields, singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. 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 263rd in the world and 1st in The Black Isle for Fattest Citizens, with 85.75 Obesity Rate.
