The Commonwealth of Rex Republic is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jmasrus with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.809 billion Rex Republicians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rexberg. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rex Republician economy, worth a remarkable 2,129 trillion Rexes a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,984 Rexes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, foreign musicians that Jmasrus dislikes are turned away at the border, bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Rex Republician language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Rex Republic's national animal is the arapaima, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bite Me.

Rex Republic is ranked 167,663rd in the world and 1,131st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 11.54 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
