The Glorious Armed Proletariat of The Land of the Red Rainbow is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mikkel Sikkel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 19.543 billion Reds are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sovkagrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Red economy, worth a remarkable 5,937 trillion Shiny Sikkels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 303,806 Shiny Sikkels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Land of the Red Rainbow's national animal is the antigay, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gaytheism.

The Land of the Red Rainbow is ranked 226,050th in the world and 921st in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 6.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
