The Power and Glory of Rekasneg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Demiurge with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.634 billion Rekasneans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dezabet. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rekasnean economy, worth a remarkable 5,705 trillion gold slivers 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 389,846 gold slivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, the police insist that racism does not exist, any girl that shows an interest in Lego is pressured to study engineering, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rekasneg's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rekasneg is ranked 266,348th in the world and 43rd in Regionless for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -33.41 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
