Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Communist Empire of South Raznakova is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Glorious Admiral Vladimir Vodovenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 987 million 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 primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Raznakovan economy, worth 154 trillion Raznas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 156,203 Raznas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Millions of Raznas have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Hawk Disease, new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending Glorious Admiral Vladimir Vodovenko", consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and sleazy politicans exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

South Raznakova is ranked 164,272nd in the world and 8,819th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 9.05 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
