The Jolly Santa Hegemony of Racoda is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rudolph with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.481 billion Racodans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racoda City. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Racodan economy, worth 907 trillion cookies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 79,060 cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown. Racoda's national animal is the zombie reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Racoda is ranked 3,029th in the world and 174th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.76 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
