The Federal Republic of Rafiland is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 515 million Rafilanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Menrva. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Rafilandian economy, worth 51.6 trillion Plumas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 100,286 Plumas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, the diplomatic corps stinks, and childhood friends of Leader are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rafiland's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
