LeaderEl Don de Paradis


The Federal Republic of RetroBeaners is a huge, safe nation, ruled by El Don de Paradis with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 883 million RetroBeanersians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradis. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient RetroBeanersian economy, worth 110 trillion Libras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 125,307 Libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over RetroBeaners, El Don de Paradis has more friends than ever before, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RetroBeaners's national animal is the Monarch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

RetroBeaners is ranked 234,061st in the world and 8,844th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.66 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
