The People's Republic of Renaia is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 117 million Renaians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Renaian economy, worth 4.78 trillion Lapis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 40,857 Lapis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Renaia's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
