The Democratic Socialist Empire of Raccooniah is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Mark Rubio with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.572 billion Raccoons 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyan City. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Raccooniahian economy, worth 857 trillion Raccoon Dollary-Doos 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. 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 an impressive 187,601 Raccoon Dollary-Doos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, rumor has it that King Mark Rubio has won three lotteries in a row, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raccooniah's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Southern Raccooniahan Orthodoxy.

Raccooniah is ranked 79,573rd in the world and 3,434th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,737.47 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
