The People's Federation of South Reinkalistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Commissar Turaniski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.596 billion Reinkalistanis 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turaniskidak Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Reinkalistani economy, worth 762 trillion Graskas 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, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 293,727 Graskas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most common answers to where babies come from are "uh... ask your mother" and "um... ask your father", the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, Court TV ratings have skyrocketed now that executions are filmed on location, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Reinkalistan's national animal is the Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Socialist Tosdodanism.

South Reinkalistan is ranked 512th in the world and 1st in Athena for Highest Poor Incomes, with 258,980.02 Standard Monetary Units.
