The Intermission of Radicaster is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Duke Albrecht Hermann XXVIII with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.115 billion Radicastrians 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aychburg. The average income tax rate is 12.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Radicastrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,047 trillion pieces of paper a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 287,736 pieces of paper, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", when you fly on Air Radicaster you win a seat or you die, and a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Radicaster's national animal is the paper airplane, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aychism.

Radicaster is ranked 1,717th in the world and 53rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 9,055.5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
