The Kingdom of Retrigation is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 500 million Retrigationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Retrigationian economy, worth 22.7 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,481 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Retrigation City to enjoy their national art, fruit pickers with degrees in Spix's macaw psychology are a common sight, companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Retrigation's national animal is the Spix's macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Retrigation is ranked 45,113th in the world and 2,664th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
