The Most Serene Republic of Raelsa is a massive, safe nation, ruled by John Doe with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.152 billion Raelsans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonalon. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raelsan economy, worth 115 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,830 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A John Doe For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of John Doe's supporters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raelsa's national animal is the Kookaburra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raelsa is ranked 130,164th in the world and 5,618th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.19 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
