The Most Serene Republic of Raelsa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by John Doe with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.289 billion Raelsans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonalon. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raelsan economy, worth 240 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,051 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raelsa's national animal is the Kookaburra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Common Sense.

Raelsa is ranked 136,123rd in the world and 6,090th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 13.96 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
