The Reich of Red Party is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mo Chou with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.66 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, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Party City. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Red Partyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,176 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 121,805 Elorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Mo Chou's most personal functions, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. 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 172,679th in the world and 5,843rd in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 1.03 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
