The Protectorate of RSCA Privateer 79 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 991 million RSCA Privateer 79ians 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 large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant RSCA Privateer 79ian economy, worth 18.4 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,566 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, babies are a small but significant export, and the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RSCA Privateer 79's national animal is the stonk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

RSCA Privateer 79 is ranked 20,484th in the world and 20th in Devide by Zero for Safest, scoring 112.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
