The Armed Communist States of South Raznakova is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Admiral Vladimir Vodovenko with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.995 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 Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vodovenko. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Raznakovan economy, worth 865 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 289,044 Raznas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. South Raznakova's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Militarism.

South Raznakova is ranked 160,349th in the world and 372nd in The Black Hawks for Best Weather, with -185 Meters Of Sunlight.
