The Republic of Rehsarc is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its burgeoning hawk population. The democratic, devout population of 651 million Rehsarcians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 18.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Rehsarcian economy, worth 15.2 trillion rubledollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,331 rubledollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is totally unknown. Rehsarc's national animal is the hawk.

Rehsarc is ranked 115,198th in the world and 2,201st in Suspicious for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 72.46 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
