The Grand Duchy of Razoria is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Walther Lussengarde with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.373 billion Razorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lussendale. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Razorian economy, worth 138 trillion Federal Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,757 Federal Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Razoria's national animal is the White Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Holy Razic Church.

Razoria is ranked 66,665th in the world and 10th in Elvarya for Most Influential, scoring 179 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
