The Corporatocratic Republic of The Republican Federation is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Representative Robert Johnson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.242 billion Republicans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Republican economy, worth 673 trillion Republican Digicoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 207,661 Republican Digicoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 934,476 per year while the poor average 28,468, a ratio of 32.8 to 1.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Republica as a backdrop, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Republican Federation's national animal is the Skunk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Republican Federation is ranked 18,030th in the world and 21st in New Warsaw Pact for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,822.41 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
