The Power and Glory of Rekasneg is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Azael with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.094 billion Rekasneans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dezabet. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rekasnean economy, worth a remarkable 3,367 trillion gold slivers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 333,596 gold slivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rekasneg's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rekasneg is ranked 207,001st in the world and 31st in Regionless for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -27.96 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
