The Armed Communist State of South Raznakova is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by General Secretary Vladimir Vodovenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.061 billion South Raznakovans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient South Raznakovan economy, worth a remarkable 3,117 trillion Raznas 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 441,498 Raznas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise General Secretary Vladimir Vodovenko on South Raznakova's coulrophobia epidemic, and trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Raznakova's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

South Raznakova is ranked 2,823rd in the world and 74th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 97.18 Effective Tax Rate.
