The Queendom of Rachelle is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.396 billion Rachelleans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.
The very strong Rachellean economy, worth 390 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 61,041 betales, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.
Voting is voluntary, euthanasia is legal, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Rachelle's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
