The Pirate Hunting of Rage Mage is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Elise Howard with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.7 billion Rageans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Phoenixia. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ragean economy, worth 186 trillion Ragean Dollars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,809 Ragean Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rage Mage's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Phoenixism.

Rage Mage is ranked 65,437th in the world and 2,798th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,079.47 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
