The Republic of Raul21 is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.124 billion Raul21ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Raul21ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,177 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 229,894 rupees, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 698,029 per year while the poor average 58,839, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Raul21ian emissions at all, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raul21's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Raul21 is ranked 40,428th in the world and 975th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 11.86 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
