The Armed Communist States of South Raznakova is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary Vladimir Vodovenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.481 billion South Raznakovans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vodovenko. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Raznakovan economy, worth a remarkable 1,099 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 315,965 Raznas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The might of the entire South Raznakovan Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, children across South Raznakova are mourning the loss of Santa Claus after the military shot down his sleigh (South Raznakova has found 1 easter egg), and summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police. 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 9,423rd in the world and 14th in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,439.41 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
