The Democratic Union of New Raria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Matt Schmidt with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.507 billion Rarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ohromny. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rarian economy, worth 250 trillion silver marks 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 99,786 silver marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, populations of two-headed tigers have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Raria's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

New Raria is ranked 77,596th in the world and 3,456th in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,358.44 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
