The Rogue Nation of The Randominion is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Igor with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 866 million Randominionians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha Complex. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Randominionian economy, worth 92.3 trillion Bitcoins 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 impressive 106,533 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime is relatively low. The Randominion's national animal is the Streaked Tenrec, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Randominion is ranked 69,247th in the world and 3,073rd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 62.87 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
