The Shattered Colony of Razorback is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Overseer with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.165 billion Razorbackians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Razorback City. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Razorbackian economy, worth a remarkable 1,747 trillion Ragnars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,342 Ragnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, Overseer's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Razorback's national animal is the Rhino, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Razorback is ranked 18,444th in the world and 384th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,478.62 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
