The Holy Matriarchy of Racoda is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.122 billion Racodans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racoda City. The average income tax rate is 28.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Racodan economy, worth 706 trillion cookies 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 a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 77,421 cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, nude art is becoming wildly popular, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and the new national anthem passes the Turing Test. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Racoda's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
