The Floating Fortress of Relkadia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Reinhardt Ironcrown with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.321 billion Relkadians 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Floating Palace. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Relkadian economy, worth 351 trillion Tekads a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,744 Tekads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Relkadian citizenship in droves, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Relkadia's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hynoism.

Relkadia is ranked 162,951st in the world and 112th in Ascenthia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
