The Riparian Procyonid Republic of Raccoon Creek is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.079 billion Raccoon Creekers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canterbury. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raccoon Creek economy, worth 388 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,332 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raccoon Creek's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raccoon Creek is ranked 198,356th in the world and 340th in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 5.79 Obesity Rate.
