The United socialist Provinces of Red Ion is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Ivan Viss with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.114 billion Red Ionians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karl city. The average income tax rate is 45.4%.

The powerhouse Red Ionian economy, worth 264 trillion Ion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Average income is 84,949 Ion Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, the last thing Red Ionian soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Ion's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zal.

Red Ion is ranked 165,181st in the world and 53rd in Deep Storage for Most Pro-Market, scoring -54.33 on the Rand Index.
