The Jolly Santa Hegemony of Racoda is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rudolph with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.761 billion Racodans 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racoda City. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Racodan economy, worth 955 trillion cookies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 81,223 cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People's charity begins and ends at home, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. Crime is totally unknown. Racoda's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Racoda is ranked 5,004th in the world and 314th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94 on the Human Development Index.
