The Really Epic Democracy of New Rapids is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Joseph Joestar with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 1.792 billion Rapidians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soutiens. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rapidian economy, worth 200 trillion rooks a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 111,934 rooks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign powers often deal with problems that New Rapids can't handle, for 25 rooks tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, teenagers sit around on their butts all day, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Rapids's national animal is the striped parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Radiformulum.

New Rapids is ranked 127,077th in the world and 189th in Karma for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.66 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
