The Empire of Regareo is a small, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 45 million Regareoans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Regareoan economy, worth 320 billion Herws a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 7,111 Herws, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, surveillance cameras are banned, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Regareo's national animal is the Unicorm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Regareo is ranked 38,546th in the world and 38th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring 55.86 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
