The Confederacy of Rectionk is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Minister Harrison with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.989 billion Rectionians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rectonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rectionkian economy, worth 398 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 200,242 credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,821,922 per year while the poor average 2,499, a ratio of 728 to 1.

Major internet servers have acquired citizenship, the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Rectionk's national animal is the lemur, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rectionk is ranked 51,767th in the world and 1,592nd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 64.78 on the Human Development Index.
