The People's Republic of Readaini is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 669 million Readainians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Readainian economy, worth 19.2 trillion credits 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. 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 28,629 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, the country has unplugged its internet connection to prevent subversive content, and the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Readaini's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Readaini is ranked 70,521st in the world and 2,665th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,241.66 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
