The Serenissima Res Publica of Rectangulo Circular is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the next door guy with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.209 billion Europćus 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Acre. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Europćus economy, worth a remarkable 1,887 trillion Europćus credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 229,931 Europćus credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rumour has it the next door guy needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rectangulo Circular's national animal is the Europćus turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the church of the Europćus.

Rectangulo Circular is ranked 96,135th in the world and 3,849th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.22 on the Rand Index.
