The Borderlands of Raccd is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by God with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.865 billion Raccdians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egg. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Raccdian economy, worth 365 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 127,561 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The practice of capital punishment proves divisive, third world countries are rich in "I Love Egg" t-shirts, bizarre-looking creatures called 'ligerdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and commemoration of the Great the South Pacific War costs almost as much as the war itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raccd's national animal is the liger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raccd is ranked 152,361st in the world and 5,902nd in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.54 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
