The Armed Republic of The United Radds is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Radd with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.21 billion United Raddsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raddopolis. The average income tax rate is 84.8%.

The frighteningly efficient United Raddsian economy, worth 468 trillion Radds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 211,962 Radds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, the fishing lobby has stemmed the tide of environmental regulations, and the most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Radds's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Militarism.

The United Radds is ranked 107,962nd in the world and 5th in The Planet X for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 620.56 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
