|Leader||Chairman of the Congress Philip Balfour|
The Syndicalist Union of Ragnaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chairman of the Congress Philip Balfour with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.303 billion Ragnarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The tiny, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Congress City. The average income tax rate is 23.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ragnarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,723 trillion People's Econas 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 amazing 288,519 People's Econas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, rumor has it that Chairman of the Congress Philip Balfour has won three lotteries in a row, recognizing the Ragnarian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ragnaria's national animal is the Akraklia, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
