The Federation of Recon Island is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 443 million Recon Islandians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coyote City. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Recon Islandian economy, worth 51.2 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 115,554 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Recon Islandian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime is totally unknown. Recon Island's national animal is the Coyote, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Recon Island is ranked 27,590th in the world and 395th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 75.7 on the Human Development Index.
