The Empire of Raunch is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 431 million Raunchians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penultimate Raunch. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Raunchian economy, worth 48.4 trillion aeughs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,212 aeughs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raunch's national animal is the flying penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Raunch is ranked 19,985th in the world and 567th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 81.76 on the Human Development Index.
