The Democratic Socialist Empire of Raccooniah is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Mark Rubio with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.797 billion Raccoons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyan City. The average income tax rate is 86.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Raccooniahian economy, worth a remarkable 1,032 trillion Raccoon Dollary-Doos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,117 Raccoon Dollary-Doos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Raccooniah" at foreigners, when shaking hands with foreign leaders King Mark Rubio wears an armoured gauntlet, the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, and school football matches are usually five-a-side. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raccooniah's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Southern Raccooniahan Orthodoxy.

Raccooniah is ranked 235,127th in the world and 9,775th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 34.11 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
