The Jolly Santa Hegemony of Racoda is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Rudolph with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.494 billion Racodans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racoda City. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Racodan economy, worth 908 trillion cookies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 79,060 cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown. Racoda's national animal is the zombie reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Racoda is ranked 15,359th in the world and 705th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,625.19 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
