The Irish Empire of Raccooniah is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Solidare III with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.246 billion Raccoons 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyan City. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raccooniahian economy, worth 375 trillion Atoms 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, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 167,165 Atoms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are exceptionally good at digging holes, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raccooniah's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Southern Raccooniahan Orthodoxy.

Raccooniah is ranked 96,350th in the world and 4,526th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 51.59 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
