The Reich of Red Party is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mo Chou with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, national health service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.991 billion Red Partyians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Party City. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Red Partyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,061 trillion Elorns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,096 Elorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Mo Chou's most personal functions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Red Party's national animal is the The Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Red Party is ranked 61,577th in the world and 2,633rd in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,384.39 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
