The Armed Communist State of South Raznakova is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary Vladimir Vodovenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.359 billion South Raznakovans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient South Raznakovan economy, worth a remarkable 1,957 trillion Raznas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 365,277 Raznas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, royalist is the most offensive slur in the South Raznakovan language, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and South Raznakova is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Raznakova's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

South Raznakova is ranked 5,088th in the world and 122nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,024.75 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
