The Republic of Recenesia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Eddie Sakera with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.446 billion Recenesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regenta. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Recenesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,289 trillion ReceDollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 236,842 ReceDollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Every week is blindness awareness week, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Recenesia's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Recenesia's national animal is the Orangutan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Recenesia is ranked 138,121st in the world and 3,023rd in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.92 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
