Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bailiwick of Renesslaer is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Royal Majesty King Ridenour XIV with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.896 billion Renesslaerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large 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 9,398 trillion Sovereigns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 393,299 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, Renesslaer is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and Imperial Lion is one of the most popular forenames in Renesslaer. 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 355th in the world and 1st in United Kingdom for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
