The Empire of Remsleep is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Early Bird with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.608 billion Remsnoozers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morning Awaken. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Remsleepian economy, worth 100 trillion Winks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,597 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Remsleepian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, public parks are littered with cigarette butts, you don't need a smoking gun to arrest someone for promoting guns, and Remsleep is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Remsleep's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sleep.

Remsleep is ranked 33,871st in the world and 927th in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 7.56 bananas ingested per day.
