The Democratic Republic of Rapid Cty is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 606 million Rapid Ctyians 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 Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 22.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Rapid Ctyian economy, worth 21.7 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,767 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nations that kill a Rapid Ctyian can expect a strongly worded letter, citizens try to ignore gruesome pictures of decaying teeth printed on their soda cans, justice is blinding, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime is well under control. Rapid Cty's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
