The Lunar Black Hawk of RachHawk001 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rachael Vytherov with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 1.822 billion Raches are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nest. The average income tax rate is 42.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rach economy, worth 140 trillion gold coins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,935 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RachHawk001's national animal is the monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lynxism.

RachHawk001 is ranked 100,899th in the world and 467th in Devide by Zero for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40.11 on the Rand Index.
