OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Commonwealth of Reactia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ebenezer Roark with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.777 billion Reactites are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rextropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Reactian economy, worth a remarkable 2,485 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 283,128 Aureuses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,297,348 per year while the poor average 37,562, a ratio of 34.5 to 1.

Families burn Ebenezer Roark's latest official photograph to keep warm, casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reactia's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mammonism.

Reactia is ranked 4,390th in the world and 9th in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 132.93 on the Hayek Index.
