The Shattered Colony of Razorback is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Overseer with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.818 billion Razorbackians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Razorback City. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Razorbackian economy, worth a remarkable 2,067 trillion Ragnars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,706 Ragnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diaper sales are up, retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Razorback's national animal is the Rhino, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Razorback is ranked 119,677th in the world and 3,131st in the Rejected Realms for Most Average, scoring 35.33 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
