The Empire of Raunch is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 619 million Raunchians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penultimate Raunch. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raunchian economy, worth 72.1 trillion aeughs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,538 aeughs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most citizens in Raunch are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, the Raunch Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raunch's national animal is the flying penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Raunch is ranked 189,064th in the world and 7,495th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.92 Crimes Per Hour.
