The Holy Random Nation of The New United Socialist Random Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supereme Director Vladimir Random with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.374 billion New Randomians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Chancia Randomia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Random economy, worth a remarkable 1,391 trillion Randoms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 258,886 Randoms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police double as repo men, you can check out of an asylum if you've changed your mind, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and edutainment video games are taking The New United Socialist Random Empire's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New United Socialist Random Empire's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

The New United Socialist Random Empire is ranked 683rd in the world and 1st in The United Federations for Most Developed, scoring 98.65 on the Human Development Index.
