The Fall to Rise of RachHawk008 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rachael with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.205 billion Rachians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.0%.

The powerhouse Rachian economy, worth 215 trillion gold coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 67,141 gold coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 215,951 per year while the poor average 15,811, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, survivors of attempted maternal infanticide are sentenced to live with their mothers forever, all fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, and troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean. Crime is moderate. RachHawk008's national animal is the black hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lynxism.

RachHawk008 is ranked 30,266th in the world and 162nd in Hemlock Grove for Most Pro-Market, scoring 71.67 on the Rand Index.
