The People's Federation of South Reinkalistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Commissar Turaniski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.56 billion Reinkalistanis 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, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turaniskidak Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Reinkalistani economy, worth 749 trillion Graskas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an amazing 292,649 Graskas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police double as repo men, Prime Commissar Turaniski often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Reinkalistan's national animal is the Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Socialist Tosdodanism.

South Reinkalistan is ranked 57,871st in the world and 2nd in Athena for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 5,682.09 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
