The Holy Corporate Lottocracy of Restorza is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Smiling God with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.717 billion Restorzans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Desert Bluffs. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Restorzan economy, worth a remarkable 4,357 trillion Schmeckles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 406,637 Schmeckles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,989,455 per year while the poor average 16,858, a ratio of 177 to 1.

Pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, and songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Restorza's national animal is the Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Strex Corp.

Restorza is ranked 260,380th in the world and 7,322nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -32.71 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
