The Most Serene Republic of R ails is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Most Royal Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.568 billion R ailsians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The very strong R ailsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,372 trillion Spikes 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. 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 246,424 Spikes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity, endangered species face obesity instead of extinction, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Most Royal Emperor, and the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. R ails's national animal is the Train, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

R ails is ranked 25,906th in the world and 1,496th in Balder for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,262.93 Tourists Per Hour.
