The Constitutional Dicatatorship of Religioncord is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mike Hawk with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.577 billion Religacords are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manrute. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Religioncordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,429 trillion Gbits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 188,692 Gbits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,357,365 per year while the poor average 8,448, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Religioncordian farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, baiting is a national sport, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Religioncord's national animal is the Murlock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Religioncord is ranked 130,023rd in the world and 7,046th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 744.55 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
