The Subsidiary Corporatocracy of RadRoachInc is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Highchair-roach Steve Willkins II with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.185 billion Business Radroaches 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark Basement Market. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Radroachian economy, worth 140 trillion Goo Goo Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 118,686 Goo Goo Coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RadRoachInc's national animal is the Radiohead Deathclaws, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Steveism.

RadRoachInc is ranked 2,158th in the world and 27th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 22,404.95 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
