The Free Land of Raadsland is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 191 million Raadslandishes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Raadslandian economy, worth 2.56 trillion rosas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 13,423 rosas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raadsland's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Raadsland is ranked 189,009th in the world and 739th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.17 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
