The Empire of Rerkeo is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 599 million Rerkians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Rerkian economy, worth 75.8 trillion Earthcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 126,519 Earthcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 481,831 per year while the poor average 23,009, a ratio of 20.9 to 1.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, there are no more heroes any more, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Rerkeo's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rerkeo is ranked 56,893rd in the world and 2,505th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 72.79 Workforce Participation Rate.
