The Most Serene Republic of Raelsa is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by John Doe with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 818 million Raelsans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonalon. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raelsan economy, worth 81.6 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,706 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. 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.

Raelsa is ranked 102,792nd in the world and 4,098th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 51.49 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
