The Federal Republic of Randbourne is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 231 million Randbourneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 24.8%.

The powerhouse Randbournean economy, worth 20.8 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 90,231 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Leader's most personal functions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Randbourne's national animal is the Brown bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Randbourne is ranked 71,513th in the world and 3,964th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 76.98 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
