The Empire of Ranjana is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 431 million Ranjanans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Best of Ranjana. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ranjanan economy, worth 28.0 trillion Ranjs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,948 Ranjs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, The Best of Ranjana has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The East Pacific, and textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ranjana's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ranjana is ranked 185,387th in the world and 8,037th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.51 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
