The Constitutional Dicatatorship of Religioncord is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Adam Shiftter with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.542 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 1,012 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, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 182,752 Gbits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 955,168 per year while the poor average 18,790, a ratio of 50.8 to 1.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, a video of Adam Shiftter wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and unruly families are deliberately marooned on desert islands. 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 35,156th in the world and 1,644th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 63.42 on the Human Development Index.
