The Dictatorship of Rawdank is a huge, safe nation, ruled by President Henry with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 955 million Rawdankians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knadwar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.8%.

The strong Rawdankian economy, worth 60.8 trillion Koremblians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 63,700 Koremblians, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, parents tell their children 'what a lovely mistake you turned out to be', dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and mountains of VHS tapes of police actions are stacking up in the National Library. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rawdank's national animal is the Wombat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rawdank is ranked 51,798th in the world and 1,682nd in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 4.48 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
