Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bailiwick of Renesslaer is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Royal Majesty King Ridenour XIV with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.374 billion Renesslaerians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lourdes. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Renesslaerian economy, worth a remarkable 9,012 trillion Sovereigns 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 385,579 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, builders across Renesslaer are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Renesslaer's national animal is the imperial lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Renesslaer.

Renesslaer is ranked 45,288th in the world and 67th in United Kingdom for Most Income Equality, scoring 51.73 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
