The Socialist Republic of Reignment is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Carl Smith with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.827 billion West Reignishes are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Charlie. The average income tax rate is 79.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Western Reignien economy, worth a remarkable 1,675 trillion Bitcoins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 347,106 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, builders across Reignment are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Reignment's national animal is the Egyptian Mau, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism | Roman Catholic Church.

Reignment is ranked 243,761st in the world and 943rd in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Crime Rates, with 9.01 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
