The Power and Glory of Rekasneg is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Azael with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.377 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 2,594 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 309,717 gold slivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, and the cold war against capitalism is growing chillier by the day. 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 18,298th in the world and 3rd in Regionless for Most Influential, scoring 1,547 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
