The Astral Black Hawks of RachHawk001 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rachael with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.39 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 Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nest. The average income tax rate is 52.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rach economy, worth 322 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,194 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, governments opposing RachHawk001 are beset by rebels, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RachHawk001's national animal is the black hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Lynxism.

RachHawk001 is ranked 203,610th in the world and 2,351st in Devide by Zero for Most Stationary, with 2.5172553334 Days.
