The Republic of Raffleston is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Thomas Wilson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.715 billion Rafflestonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stamford City. The average income tax rate is 60.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rafflestonian economy, worth 273 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,564 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, and Calvinball training often involves digging escape tunnels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raffleston's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raffleston is ranked 19,060th in the world and 48th in Lands End for Smartest Citizens, with 64.44 quips per hour.
